I Peered Into the Window

Puebla window

I peered into the window,
And there what did I see?
Dreamy shapes made manifest,
Staring back at me!

I could not understand it,
I thought I’d lost my mind,
The shapes were there before me—
Before me, not behind!

I glanced away so quickly,
I nearly snapped my neck;
I stilled my heart a moment—
And then I ran like heck!

  1. I love that the interpretation of your poem is left to the imagination of the reader!

  2. Makes me wonder what you saw behind you that scared you.

  3. you are so lively and fun….you must be FINISHED with the teaching year.


  4. Wonderful. Scary mystery! I love it.

  5. I tried to make this photo bigger to see if I could see what you saw, but then I thought about the poem. All I know is that you imply it was scary ’cause you ran like heck, but for some reason, I am smiling from ear to ear. Kind of like being a kid and getting spooked by something that isn’t necessarily all that spooky.

  6. Interesting lines .. sad you ran away and not stood to learn more !

  7. Beautiful capture!
