Lace Curtains

Posted: March 11, 2010 in Uncategorized

When I wrote this I had given myself a little challange. I thought it would be fun to pick an object in my house and write about it. This is what I came up with.

Lace Curtains

Flowing in rhythmic beauty, subtle folds

Patterns worthy of delicate repetition

Playfully diffusing the day’s sun

A garden of woven delight between scalloped edges


Enhancing a pane weathered by years

Teasing the eye that looks can be deceiving

Snowy white or palest hue

Bold as American blue


Set in motion, a breeze cheating its way in

Swishing and swirling

A dance befitting the lovely pair

One could only dream of being as graceful


Through the ages, a timeless adornment

Passed from mother to daughter and beyond

The years of valued service not evident

A sentimental statement, if only through imagination
