I'm A Window Without The Dressing

With A World Of Choices

A chose to be plain

I feel with so many other windows to compete with why be like them

They are different and wonderful in their own way

Each have their special qualities and wonderful flair

They open from the top or the bottom

Some crank and others slide

They can be as enormous as a Bay window or tiny and small

Holding an airconditioner tight in the unbearable heat

Each has many coverings that catch the eye

Only with one purpose to cover what's already there

You pay a lot for a window to look out and see the world we live

I have seen curtains of every size, shape and color

All kinds of material that make them heavy and thick for those cold winter nights

Also light cotton to make them airy and almost invisible

Decorated with every pattern and style

When you uncover a window what do you see ?

So simple and neccessary

Framed so perfect like a picture centered just right

You have such pleasure opening me up wide

On a cool day when the wind is blowing

To capture that breeze and to cool your home

Then on a rainy day stop the wind and hard rain

Keeping you dry and not to come any closer

In the winter time to keep the cold out

Then once again bring in the morning sun

Finding a way of waking you so you can go on with your day

I am not just a window

I am your view of beauty that awaits

So unlike my competitors who cover their frames

Each draped with everything from shades to blinds

Next time you open a window

All I ask can you open mine

Choices are hard to make and sometimes you just got to do what you think is right

DDE People make different choices at different ages of their life.We sometimes find out years later if our choices were good or bad.I love to let the light in and a friend wants no outside light.To each his own. Dim Flaxenwick I try.Now I hope you feel the cool breeze right down to your high heels.(lol)I love a nice breeze.One that shuts the inside door is a shock when your hear the door shut.Thanx so much for reading and commenting.I hope you both have a wonderful night.
