Through The Window II

By Peter Halstead

Blinds that graze the windowpane,
Wind that opens up the eyes,
Eyes that mirror in the frame
The sun that winds up open sky;

Clouds that graze like cows in blinds,
Cows that hang like wind in sky,
Mirrors of the panes that wind
Up blinded windows' eyes;

Clouds that hang like cows in sky,
Cows that graze like clouds
On grass in windowpanes that blind
Us with a sky of clouded glass;

Panes that hang on sky like sun,
Sky that opens panes like blinds,
Blinds that mirror sun on sun,
Sun that winds up panes like sky;

Wind that hangs like blinds on sun,
Sky that pulls like wind on blinds,
Sun that blinds like sky on sky,
Sky that winds up sun like blinds;

Open sky winds clouds and grass
To blind us with a pane of wind,
And hang us in the window sun: as
If mind lost sight like eyes

Lose sky, and grazing youth
Grew clear as cows on grass
And wind on sky when eyes and minds
Grew dark as window's blinds.
