A New Leaf by James Babbs

I’ve probably spent too much time
sitting here and looking
through the window at things
things that were never too far away
I mean
all I would’ve had to do
was get up from my chair and
walk outside
in order to touch them
feel them with my own hands
instead of just sitting here and
imagining what they felt like and
maybe
I still have time
maybe
it’s not too late
