Window Dressing


NaPoWriMo 2017


You peeped in, yet again knocking,enticingly

Yesterday you were dressed blue, stars swaying across in a spray


What was it you wanted to say, whispering?

Yesterday, when you tugged that branch away


What were you up to, lingering behind like that

Yesterday, your luminosity was gentle, yet you seemed astray


Why did you smirk at the street lamp in guilt?

Yesterday, my rooftop witnessed your celestial cabaret


When did you learn such unassuming grace?

Yesterday, you peaked through your veil as the fireflies came to play


How did you stand still with a poker face?

Yesterday, when the little boy begged for the rabbit sticker you have on your face


Where else do you dare tiptoe barefoot these days?

Yesterday, you cheekily trespassed over my pathway
