One Poem by Jan Harris

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

From a skyscraper’s roof

It’s all about the view from here
and never looking down,
where the horizon is a prayer
answered at dusk and dawn.

And never looking down
is a kind of freedom
remembered at dusk and dawn
by the blackbird’s sweet song.

There is a kind of freedom
when the horizon is a prayer,
its sweet amen the blackbird’s song.
Oh, the view from here!
