Daily Prompt; Through the Window/ The Daily Post

Picnic table


Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you saw.

The big picture is gray. The only colors I see are the house colors and green grass. Many bare trees with fingers stretching, trying to locate their lost leaves. There is another color I can add, black. The tree trunks are very black from the rain we have had the past two days.

When I look closer in distance I see a black squirrel. He is waiting for me to throw him his peanuts. I will be leaving soon so I will do it then. I am sure he will still be close by. My home is the color of the skies, gray. They are a very close match today.

There is a fire pit that sits alone with ashes from last fall. It looks cold with its neutral colors of bricks surrounding it. I can see in my memories people standing around it laughing and talking. These are some of my best memories since I have moved in here.

There is a swing where my brother used to sit. Now it is still and empty. If I listen very close I can hear it calling to me. Soon it will be spring. You will be able to come join me. You can look up at the white puff clouds and swing relaxing the mind.

There is a nice picnic table that holds six to eight people. Now it is wet and shiny from the rain. No one is visiting. There are no foods or drinks with a pretty red table-cloth laying on top of the table.

The world looks baron but soon enough it will be once again filled with laughter and love, drinks and food and the lazy days of summer.

  3. Good description, Terry. It is very grey around here, too. It has been raining and we actually have had a couple of brief thunder storms and the temperature was over 50′ today. I had to go out this afternoon for our prayer meeting and it was coming down in a deluge. Even with the window wipers going at top speed it was hard to see. Fortunately I only had a few blocks to go. But there is no snow left except where it was piled up with the plows. And that is OK with me. It’s supposed to be the same tomorrow then down to 24′ Thursday with snow. Will I ever be glad when winter is over.

  6. Very nice … and I could see everything in front of me – just like I been standing next to you. Get well soon, girlfriend. My day is very grey and wet … needed this badly.


      • I thought you had an eye infection .. be now careful so you don’t transfer it to the other eye too – don’t use normal towels for your face .. use paper disposable.
        And good that you went to the doctor – because bronchitis doesn’t go away by itself.
        Sleep and only think about yourself now. Talk to you when every you feel for it.


      • I am keeping my eyes separate from each other. I sure don’t want this in both eyes. The doctor said my eye lids are getting older and starting to sag a tiny bit, closing off the little ducts. I spent most of last nite a wake and coughing. my whole upper body is aching from so much coughing. now have cough medicine and my antibiotic
