Partially Shadowed

Sky Collection — Poem 112

see her through
a window
a creature awake
before dawn
see her morning ritual
swiping ants
scratching mosquito bites
sipping lemon water
a quick cleanse before
the coffee is ready
she lets her dog out
throws a treat
stands partially shadowed
sweet-talking her puppy
before returning
to darkened rooms
wait for her again
hope to see who she is
this creature
through the window.
