flowing smoothly the curtain sways
bringing crisp warm air
to a home sealed
from the lengthy
winter held this year
only a few hours
the bright sun appears
over the sink
wisps of dust
fill the air
as this mornings
bread crumbs
remain somewhat there
counter top shades are
lighter with beams
directed upon there
as the washcloth
swipes the germs
the surface dries
quickly in rays of warmth
enjoying the moment
circling the plate
several times over
peering out
through the rectangular frame
seeing colors show through
melting snow
then a noise
from within
calls attention
to finish quickly
leaving the curtains
swaying, flowing smoothly
