Sort out my day; sweep up the detritus of yesterday; dust the promise of tomorrow.
Kitchen steeping in crumbs of butter toast and raspberry tea.
Smile-fast dreams; past lives of wettened whimsy: rubber ducks and geranium-red dresses.
Once a warrior; once an explorer; once a lover. Now . . .
Kitchen window frames my world; rust-patina encases my heart.
Written for mmlm sunday writing prompt collage; written during life in the time of virus.
