A View From My Balcony


                   A View From My Balcony


Since I was a child, I loved to watch –

From my balcony the world go past,

Then it was at work I quietly drew

Sketches of men and women I knew.


An airline stint gave me a bird’s eye view,

A career in retail a closer review;

But it was the head-hunting stint

That gave me insight to man’s within.


Today, I still curiously view the world

That goes past my Facebook Wall,

For mute or astute I get a myriad view

Of human psyche rich and true.
