Clouds move in…

image
 
A pool in sun,
children playing,
a girl swimming laps.
Around:
trees dancing,
plants stretching,
birds…

An upstairs window darkens,
as an older woman steps in.
Looking down,
she notices the girl and frowns.

Out across the garden:
clouds move in,
rain spits,
hands yank hair.
The grinding of gears,
the choke of emotion;
the descending of stairs.
