Stained Glass Windows



love/window/dream/lipstick - this was the prompt for a weekend poetry writing exercise at "April ". This was my poem. The painting is by Huang Hsiao-Hui, titled "Yellow Roses" 2014







I looked out the window
At the rain coming down
I saw a smudge of red lipstick
From yeas ago


Was it love
Or was it just a dream
I stepped closer
To see it better

It was a shred of a rose petal
Clinging to the wet glass
Like its life depended on it
