Courtyard

outside the window,
i see them walking

across the courtyard
in bright sunshine.

they look so small!

small as scurrying ants,

from that distance
and that high up.


where are they going;
what do they want?

are their hopes 
and dreams possible?

how do i know what 
questions to ask?


ancient buildings
surround the square.

we look in wonder,

(what are those
people thinking?

scurrying in the heat)


different perspectives
change the context.

so that we understand
things a bit better,

because we see
more of the picture.


but they look so small!

small as scurrying ants
