Spring’s Sheen

But still
the rain beats,
streaks the window in strings
and seams.
The wind is a rattle.

Refasten the clematis,
I remind myself.

Its pink sheen, mere confetti.
A string tight to the beam,
straighten its list.
A lean, bit to the right,
a bit to the left.
A child’s game.

for Sunday Whirl #351

This week’s words: fasten, still, beat, rattle, sheen, streak, game, beam, seam, string, list, simple.
