Sound chain

by q8designer.devianart.com

In her window
behind the blinds
the sounds are knocking.

The sounds are knocking
one by one, fast, faster
voices ask unclear.

Voices ask unclear
at this quiet day
accompanied by heater.

Accompanied by heater
as if in a rumbling train
she travels.

She travels
on the wave
memory of forks.

Memory of forks
dropping down lately
often mean a change.

Often mean a change
a little, a big
what range?

What range of
efforts to live the life
we dream about?

We dream about
the present
in front of us, now.

In front of us, now
make a step, say ‘hi’
live with intent.

  7. We all need time, some more time than others, for zoning out.
    'Zoning out' is a term used by Walter in the new movie,
    "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

    I love the Thurber story and identified strongly with Walter.
    Knocking on my window would be welcome,
    I'd come to the rescue of those within.
