Light through Lace Curtains.


With effort

Open the casement window:

fresh air

like a breath

lifts the lace curtains

shadowed softly on the walls.



into acceptance,

days blending

the heavy into light,

the taut raw times


mere wisps of curtains accomplish this,

mere wishes,

many prayers.


Faint flowers of light


dim walls.

    Thank you, David. For those of us without streams or rivers in our neighborhood, lace curtains sometimes stand in for Nature.
    At least there are breezes for the curtains, and for me. : )
