"The Corner Table's Point Of View

My corner table sits
in this back niche, along
the path from door to arch,
from back hall to the next
room, looking to the front
door, seen around the jamb
another arch provides.

I sit and write, allow
distractions here and there -
a customer's approach,
a man and his computer
across the room, the pair
departing, smiles and frowns,
the sway of hips and swish

of skirts, a water splash,
a bit of voice, a lush
of quiet, conversation
and radiio beyond
my sight. This is a place
of watching worlds go by,
the worlds that barely notice."

About William Flewelling

See more books from this Author
Having written poetry for about 30 years, drawing from my work as a minister and my observation of life and people and nature and much that stirs around me, I have come to add this collection to those I have already made available. As retired from active ministry, I write now from my home on a ridge in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia where I live with my wife of 44 years, two dogs and four cats, drawing on my experience of these hills and my somewhat routine occasions in town.
