What lies beyond the sash

“At night, I open the window and ask the moon to come and press its face against mine. Breathe into me. Close the language-door and open the love-window. The moon won’t use the door, only the window.” ~Rumi

I love windows with divided light. I find it enchanting.

There is just something about windows with a lace curtain that sets my heart all aflutter.  I find it enchanting-charming-lovely.  I especially love this type of window in old farmhouses, or older homes with character.  Ahh, to sit by a window with a view and just soak up the  sunlight, or to curl up in a chair beside one on a drizzly day.  Windows are perfect to focus on or through while gathering thoughts or ideas or contemplating something.  Pair a book and a window and you have the ideal simple pleasure.

What lies beyond?

How do you feel about windows?  What’s your simple pleasure?

  1. Emily – When I read your post, I felt the need to write – I love your photos of such a warm and cozy home – I love what you allow the reader to see beyond the windows etc – Very nice photography style – I felt you would enjoy my Colonial Farmhouse (built in 1920 – Updated in the 1970s) – I recently took a photo of my lace curtains for a photography online course. There is nothing like a place we can call home!
