This week I would like to suggest the topic of Windows. Looking in. Looking out. Or perhaps trapped within the glass, neither in nor out.
If it is possible, I suggest that you take a photograph of a window in your area and write to or about that window. (I walked around with my camera today being aware of window and taking photos. The photo of the one above was taken today. You could do the same.) What is on the other side? What is the view? Or, if you are looking in, what do you imagine? Do you generally see yourself inside looking out or outside looking in? Is the window open to fresh air or closed, covered with shades or curtains or blinds? When you walk or drive by windows, do you ever wonder what is on the other side? It would be interesting to see photos of windows from all over the poetry blogosophere. Or if you are thinking philosophically, you might want to write about the window to your heart, your soul, etc.Take your time. We will be here all week. Try to post by Monday. Consider windows in whatever way moves you to write, and include a photo if you can.
Here are a few quotations that may inspire you:
When you have written your poem post your link using Mr. Linky. I will look forward to reading your poems. Posted by Mary who can be found In the Corner of My Eye and who is honored to be mixing the Jam this week.
