these windows

It’s been years
Since I opened up
The windows.

Today, it gives me
Calm and energy.
I smell summer.

Flashing back to
Mom’s home;
Living on the top floor.

Hearing birds gossip
The buses that drive by.
Energetic crickets at night.

The view is different now.
The scenes are unfamiliar,
But these memories stay.
