Red Window

A mirror held up to the glow,
what masterpieces
this inviting red window
has showcased.
Prancing white elephants.
Islands unmoored.
The sun and its absence too.
Inquisitive wasps.
A tranquil sea’s deep blue.
Night’s dark ways.
Gossamer dappled in dew.
An entire gallery
of moods and varied views.
And now this,
as the morning debuts:
A bird preening
like some painted trollop,
never minding
dust’s smudged makeup.
