Spring Window

the frame of
her window
illuminated

in spring
as a sheer
curtain dances

across the belly
of a cloud
shuttered

screened
in rain-spattered panes
on electric evenings

when harsh winds
billow and careen
her soft dress

against the mesh
Lightning flash
silhouettes

damp as shadows
hung drying overnight
lace-patterned

on a register
after the storm
miles away.
