From my window, I see a stately oak
and the bayou beyond
flanked by cypress knees
sticking up like toy soldiers.
Sometimes, a heron happens by
stealthily stalking a wayward minnow.
Sometimes, the sun beams down
in a spotlight directing my gaze
to the intricate design of trees.
And some days, I don’t have time
to look, watch, or listen,
But I know my bayou
is always near
keeping me grounded,
showing me faithfulness,
bringing me solace.
This Slice/ Celebration idea came from Elsie. She wrote “Outside my Window” for her Day 2 Slice of Life.
I’ve been on break all week. Such a gift to be able to look outside, take walks with Charlie, and lunch with friends. I celebrate this time to look out the window.
