I meant to do it yesterday
but got too busy to
hear the blue jay squawk and
find him in the oak
too busy to feel wind’s eye on my face,
to follow the swallowtail flight,
to watch a salmon sunrise
But I took the time this morning
and that has made all the difference
The word “window” derives from the Old Norse word, vindauga, which means wind’s eye.
The last line of the poem just happens to be the same last line in Robert Frost’s poem, The Road Not Taken.
