Sunbeams Melting a Battered Heart

Sunbeams across countertop

warming the surface

littered with the effluvia

of a busy life.

It looks almost inviting.

and she wants to bask

in the warm inviting glow from

the kitchen sink window.

Nothing left to do

but tidy the mess like a person

who has the essense

of a satisfied housekeeper

to impress the visitor who will

visit her and not even notice

the work she put into making

the house homey.

Will he notice the effort?

Or will he prefer to notice the

serenity and calm that envolops

her as she moves about in her


waiting to introduce

the man to her life and

hoping he finds

it welcoming.
