Yellow Curtain

window half open
yellow curtain dances

peeling paint on the pane
milky layers of
white again

stain on the curtain
a battle scar
of family gatherings past
perhaps unruly mustard
or a feisty deviled egg

yellow curtain
oh the life you’ve seen

I hear the clink, clink, clink of spoon against glass as I stir a pitcher of's all very real in my head. LOL
