Life by the Window Seat

A seat by a window with winged heart,
The sun bleeding across the clouds,
Every ray penetrates to spread smile,
Above thousand miles neon red and blue colors,
Dark clouds bursting purity by coughing into my glass panes,
Hands outside to catch those needle drops,
My nose pressed to the glass
Eyelashes widened to take a perfect picture,
Legs crossed,books on my bubbly thigh,
Ears corked with music and lyrics,
Hair tangles each other to rush behind my ear,
Face aces to bring out new selfie expressions,
Absorbing and watching the people go by
Brings a party dance through my journey with warm&cool blow of air,
Just a seat with window,music&
My breath of serenity.
A seat by a window
So I can see beyond what I know
So I can grasp hope
So I can chance to witness something

  9. I guess we all see different aspects of life around us when sitting by the window. Your poem beautifully captures each and every emotion one experiences on such journeys day in and day out.

  10. Beautifully written! I always try to find a seat by the window. There is no particular reason but i just love to gaze outside...
    My nose pressed to the glass
    Eyelashes widened to take a perfect picture,
    Ears corked with music and lyrics... this is exactly what I do!

  11. There are so many things that we observe and make stories of while sitting by the window. Your words made the whole experience alive. Beautifully penned. 😊

  12. The lines are realistically written imparting a lovely imagery...Keep blogging ☺��

  13. I could visualize all that you had written. Nicely done! :)

  14. A lovely poem, Shraesta. You brought out many vivid imagery through your words

  15. As much as I find rhythmically synced stanzas, I adore the freestyle of poetry, like the one you shared just above. As I read, you gave me a nostalgia. If you've written it for a prompt, you must consider copywriting! Poetry on command - hats off!! Next time, try your hand at balancing the ending tones. You'll explore a different side of yourself. :)
