Featured Review on this writing by 88 fingers

I photographed a woman in a coffee shop window and wrote this poem

woman in a starbuck’s window



woman sits in a starbuck’s window

looking, searching, waiting, watching


is it the thing that watchers

in an  Edward Hopper painting

wait, search, look, watch for


does she know

who she is looking for

who she is searching for

who she is waiting for

who she is watching for


I wonder if the subjects in

Hopper’s paintings

knew when they looked

out of hotel windows,

out of café windows

out of train car windows

who the person, or place or thing was

that would satisfy their need(s)

Very good poem. I think we all have that moment when we look out a window. Waiting, searching, wondering, hoping....
