Buried in homework, I glance up at the window
and though I'd normally resume my daily responsibilities, my eyes linger.
My eyes begin wandering to the clouds
and blue skies above me.
I watch the birds gracefully soaring
claiming the skies for themselves.
I notice the squirrels,
as they scurry around without a care.
I see the trees,
bent over houses, protecting them
from the world around.
I know that nobody will ever fully understand this planet,
but each time look out my window
I feel one step closer to
figuring it out.
