A Pause For Breath

You lay on your back in the hallway,

head towards the door.

So the light from the stained window

could fall across you face

and paint your skin shades of blue.


From the top of the stairs

I watched you

sing songs to the sunlight,

while the birds whistled outside

and the rest of the world

fell silent.

    I’d like to show my appreciation to the picture you chose for this post. Oh, I figured out that I spent few moments staring at it but actually they were years of memories came into my mind through this picture – I used to see this view a lot! Thank you Carol for this post and this wonderful window picture
