From my Window

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Peering from my window,

into the changing hues of a winter sky,

I wander, thoughts drifting as the solemn clouds,

parted, infused, brooding layers of life.


And so I contend with my fancy,

between consciousness and my dreams,

the outpourings of a soul seeking,

always swayed by the heart to find truths.


It is within this my malaise,

between logic and imagination,

my thoughts effervesce,

taunting truths and ideals to express.


I seek not to find definitives,

rather the spaces between the lines,

the lost snippets in shadow,

and the texture of human grit.


Here in this my playground,

I wallow in the primordial ooze,

the beginnings of the creative cycles of life,

to wear life like a skin and to infuse.


Both darkness and light pervade me,

and in my wanderings I absorb the harsh realities,

the abhorrent truths of malice and narcissism,

that dwell within each of us.


Far from perfection we oscillate within the swell of voices,

the endless resounding of truths and lies,

adjusted and accepted in our desperation,

to find place in this earthly dream.


As I look out my window,

I return to my words,

given flight upon the page by thoughts aloft,

images and fancy that I alone contain.



The written word is an explorations of the human mind, unveiling what is instilled in our hearts and experiences.

Thanks Vincent, again for your kind words and support. When we make that connection with our readers, there is no greater gratification, no greater tribute to the art. This is how we all learn from one another, by continually extending the periphery of our understanding. Take care.

Yes as poets we are always challenging our surroundings to release understanding to our poetic voice, they are our inspiration, and work together with our Muse to arouse us to pen our feelings, worries, concerns, anger, love and relate somehow to them, hoping that what we pen and share will be understood and arouse our readers to action of some kind. I enjoyed this piece very much, your expression of your art arouses all the senses and makes one think even that much harder about ones life.

Thank you Siddharth, kind words indeed. I'm glad you find my words though-provoking; that is certainly my intent. The more we relate to one another the more we each learn about ourselves. Have a great day.

Very nice poetry Sir

Its always a pleasure to read your poems

It absorbs my mind and forces me to think what am I doing with my life. It takes you to an insightful voyage to explore your soul and to be able to contemplate your life. Though I do not like pose poetry much but yours are an exception.

Keep up the work

Hi Colin, glad the weather's cooled down for you. Adelaide gets some pretty high temps in Summer: sometimes late 30's and over 40 for weeks at a time. Now, it's just bloody cold and miserable. I think the weather has a lot to do with my moods and on the good side, what I think about to write. Love how you immerse yourself in music and film. I do believe we learn so much from all art and expression, so much so I believe we are far more open and informed about life as a consequence. At least that's what I think. Speaking of Dali, saw some originals in Venice that I won't forget. He's one of my favourite artists. Thanks again for your kind words and enjoy a good nights sleep, having filled the soul with artistic beauty. Speak soon.

You are a true and pure poet - always searching and seeking and so much are you a master of this genre. I do not consider myself a poet for I just get lucky with words.

Up late my good buddy that you are , Sir Tony, at lake erie time 3:31am with some beers and Elvis Costello and the My aim is true album and now some Bowie from his Low and Heroes period in Berlin and I had some blues too from Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf earlier, lol , we had quite a heat wave this past week - the lake was my home on a few days but it has cleared away for a more cooler air and I hope all is well with you my friend - are you familiar with some silent classic films - Carl Dreyer's Joan of Arc can be found free on you tube and Un Chien Andalou - a surrealistic classic from Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali.

Will post and link your majestic words here on my FB page for all to see and read
