From My Window…

The night falls on my city

The sun sinks into the sea… A calmness grows inside of me

I put off all the lights

Candles burning on a plate… Shadows dancing as I contemplate

Listening to my favourite band

Music playing at loud…The city beneath serves as a perfect background

Streets busy with life

Cars with headlights on…. A moving feast of light has just begun

Grand towers in the horizon

Glass and steel they blend… Man made jewels in midst of the desert sand

About Sam

Cerca Trova is the Latin for ” Seek and you Shall Find “…. I’ve been in constant search for meaningful answers to many issues in my life..i have found some and many are still missing… I found answers in music, in poetry,in other’s words,and my personal experience… Yet I’m still seeking answers for so much more… I would love to share with you what I’ve found so far,and take you along on my journey in seeking the rest…

    Two of my favorite places are San Francisco and NYC. Your poem spawned a yearning for a trip to one or the other.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Great poem, I really love it, and this isn’t anything negative, but in the piece when you mention listening to your favorite band, I’d have rather you named a band, or a piece of music. I mean, everything else in the poem adds to the picture, that one line makes me wonder what to fill it with.
    Sorry, I do like the poem a lot. 🙂

    • Sam says:

      Thanks Lavender your comments are always appriciated, and it will be interesting to know what music you would have had playing in that picture, very intrested to know…:-)

      • Lavender says:

        Oh, I get it. What would I fill that piece of the picture with. Um, I’m thinking jazz… French.

      • Sam says:

        Beautiful choice… I would recommend Patricia Kaas, the legendary Charles Aznavour…and for a magical experience The Master Leonard Cohen…personally that eve I was listening to Massive Attack…:-)

    After spending much of my life living in a fairly rural setting, I now spend a fair amount of time in the city. Your description is perfect.

  24. Jingle says:

    Happy Tuesday, return favor to those poets who are here yet you did not reach them initially…
    I am saying these to all poets, hope that you take it rationally…
    thanks for the support.

  25. I like looking at the city lights from my window, too. It gives me a sense of peace, very calming, which is also the effect your poetry has.
