Window Interlude – Reflections


There is mystery here

induced by light,

not difficult or rare,

a pedestrian sight,

yet magical

none the less,

drawing the eyes

deep into dream.


It’s a sleight of vision,

a riddle of the gods,

solved by

a gazing child

who can’t let go

of this sunlit puzzle.


Lost in this tableau

of reflected thoughts

he is found in wonder.


Poem and photo by clinock.

  1. There’ re as many patterns and layers with even more details within in the photo as there’ re in the poem, John. Such a beautiful and powerful correlation…with thoughts lingering in the air.
    PS: Funnily enough – glimpses of art of Hundertwasser flashed in my mind for a moment while looked at the photo. 🙂


    1. Hundertwasser connection is perfect as are your perceptions of this post – thank you Ese for your welcome inspiration, always and all ways…
