Another World Outside

— Lesa Medley

Outside the steamed windows
another life exists…
stray dogs and cats, birds,
an occasional squirrel,
or two
all going about their business,
foraging for food
seeking shelter,
or just happily playing.
They are all in the same business…
the business
of survival.
The same as us, I suppose
but on a different level…
a deeper more basic,
primitive level,
more instinctual perhaps
but we all want the same thing…
to survive.
To be safe, healthy,
and to grow strong…
to thrive.
And maybe, just maybe,
if we are all really lucky,
to be happy and
have a little fun
in the process.
