Looking In

Girl in the window
what do I know of
thick dog-eared books
and graphing calculators?
I am your distracted study partner,
the one who abandoned you for
cobblestone streets
and escapist photography.

THANKS: Becca for a ride to work and Jesus for a ride home so I didn't have to wait in the cold for the bus earlier this week.

  1. How sweet-love the touch of longing and romance-maybe they will meet -again?:-)

  2. This makes me want to see the rest of the scene! Does the study partner go back in eventually? Does she feel abandoned or is this a normal occurrence? Great job creating a wonderfully complete scene in so few words.

  4. I've a feeling the partner isn't going back in, something about that word 'escapist'! Really enjoyable read. Thanks for linking up!

  5. This is fabulous! Love the voice in this – kind of wish I'd been the escapist study partner when I was in school... :)

    1. I know--so much more fun than actually studying.

  6. Partners yet, opposites! The beauty of our world is that such diversity can exist. It is what makes life so interesting, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing your great work! Glad you beat the winter weather home this past week, too. It has been a brutal winter in Ontario.

  9. This is lovely! I love that it's really a simple declaration of who she (the narrator) is. Very very nice.
