BACKYARD STAGE

Updated on July 31, 2013

Early morning

Beethoven's "Pathetique" flows to my hearing from beyond

as I look through the window

golden leave breaks away

floats teeter-totter

weaving the air

to lie among brothers fallen

crisp they are as the autumn dawn

warm am I from within

appreciating the eye for its beholding

      Thanks xstatic. And as for looking out the window; it's like anything else,it's easy to over-think it. At times we search the horizon, when what we are looking for is right in front of our noses.

      Thanks! I know that as a photographer you can understand that sometimes doing something as simple as looking out your window can bring inspiration.
