Spring is almost here. Will we venture outside and write less or be inspired to write more? I'm curious to see. Happy writing and reviewing!

"Deja Vous" by jsholmeg

Spotted her staring through
the parted curtains
of her second-floor apartment

within the bunker-like
cinder block bastion-
graying hair, hollow

tired, distant eyes
passionless, remote
watching the world

as if waiting for
a long-lost lover
an estranged son or

her daughter's family to visit-
feeling her emptiness
hoping I would never come to that

as I cruised slowly
perusing rent signs for
apartments in the neighborhood.

Now, from my red brick building
around the corner from
where I spied her

years earlier-
I peer thru my second floor
curtains wistfully, longing

for the "Good Ol' days-
eyes transfixed following the
stealthy, blue sedan

as it creeps by slowly
searching for
a prospective residence.
