Daily Prompt: Through the Window

“Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you saw.” -The Daily PostΒ 

Glancing out one of the windows at the college that I go to, I watched as other students walked by. I observed how the number of people walking outside increased drastically as the clock neared three, most likely because most college classes will either begin or end on the hour.

It is interesting to watch people who clearly have an agenda. Each and every student is on their own little mission to go somewhere, to do something, to meet someone. Certain people frantically scuttle along trying to make it to their destination right on time, whereas you’ll find others who sluggishly walking past my window at 3:10, and it’s typically those very people who don’t actually want to be there to begin with.

As I stood looking out the window, I watched snow from the previous day drip and form puddles. The pavement outside was clear with nothing but sporadically scattered pieces of rock salt left over from the snow storm yesterday.

As I watched and watched, people came and went, and I couldn’t help but to notice that life progressed.
