NaPoWriMo Day 29:

This one is called “in the window.” Imagine a window looking into a place or onto a particular scene. It could be your childhood neighbor’s workshop, or a window looking into an alien spaceship. Maybe a window looking into a witch’s gingerbread cottage, or Lord Nelson’s cabin aboard the H.M.S. Victory. What do you see? What’s going on?

Poem Title: Life-A Mirage

I looked out of window,

No life in sight, no joy I could see,

Where did vanish all the glee?

Was the world hibernating?

Was it a mirage?

I heard happiness knock at my door

I dashed to embrace,

But there was no trace,

Darkness was all I could see

Was it a mirage?

Deserted I felt, in the desert of solitude,

When raindrops moistened my face,

I heard someone call my name; I looked around,

Dry sand was all found- no human, no rain

Was it a mirage?

I kept chasing life, throughout my life

A glimpse, I thought, I may have witnessed,

Insatiable I was, I never had enough,

At last, I understood,

Life is a mirage!
