Yonder window


The window is small

and only pallid fragments

of light penetrate.

    1. Thank you. Once again the picture inspired the words, with a little Shakespeare thrown in for good measure (Romeo and Juliet). Actually there is some deliberate stuff in there about the pallid light, because Juliet’s complexion, pale, was interpreted as a sign of her virginity. The title comes from Romeo’s speech which begins ‘what light from yonder window breaks…’ Wow…did I really think these things? Most of my poems are not so thought out.

      1. That’s quite the inspiration, Scooj! I certainly love the stories behind works. I’ve known that white represents purity, but I had no idea that extended to complexion, as well! Yikes. I’m currently quite tan from the summer. What a coquettish trollop am I! 😳
