The View From My Window

Slanted sunshine splits the lawn
And, with coalescing shadows,
Weaves a web of rustic nature
Now printed on the Earth.

And while this image, blended
With trees that prick the sky,
Like a green-leafed spider upended,
Does dance upon one’s eyes,
It’s not this mental snapshot
That is pasted in your mind.

Rather, the blatantly obstructive wires
That rip apart the portrait.
Mother nature - ducked away,
Or, rather, pushed aside -
Yields predominance
To the thin, black ladder
Which ends
Far, with the sky.
