Day 18

Challenge: What’s outside your window?

Time to Go

A shining strip of the lake through
sheer curtains, 
heaving and sparkling in
cellophane waves

The zip of cars 
back and forth 
along Lake Shore Drive
going fast, not stopping, on their way

Sere tree branches unfolding
like an unbundled broom
up to clouds glowing with
champagne morning sun

Another Monday
the edge of the week

Miles of roadway going 
away from and back to
Unfiltered view
