Two Windows

Elaine Andres – Deakin University

Two windows

Each alike

Jewels of the face

See what they show.

Frames of the soul

Marbled glass, white sky

Blue gives into grey

The heavens give into

Clouds streaked with red.

Scolding the weak

And praising the brave

Judge with no words

For they’ve no lips

Just ebony pits to throw away pleas.

Observant pendulum

Left and right, back and forth

Or is it forth and back?

They are clear

They are cloudy

Watching but blind

The silent judges.


Elaine Andres is currently a second year student studying in Professional and Creative Writing. One day she hopes to publish her book but for now she slaves over a cold keyboard, trying to get her erratic thoughts down before they dissolve in her mind.
