  1. Allows the light to flood in,
    Perched against the wall
    To see the world spin
    To watch the day fall

    This device can show
    Simple nature outside
    You can watch the leaves blow
    And world you have eyed

    It can lead to a lake
    Or a desert full of sand
    The sunrise to you, awake
    Or the sunset ‘cross the land

    Through the wall, your vision will pass
    Through nothing more than simple glass

  2. – Following NPWM site prompt

    Hour after hour, day after day,
    I’m eternally swallowed,
    By tormenting waves that wish,
    Oh they wish,
    To quench my flame.
    However, they cannot be rid of thorns,
    Thorns left on the flowers of my crown,
    People speak such whispers,
    Saying thorns should never be grown.
    Don’t blame the flower, for never being worn.
    But sometimes the thorns prick me,
    I’m left with tattered skin and tears of crimson.
    Agh! Why must it always be,
    The prettiest things take my heart away from me?
