Guest Poet: Patricia Anne McGoldrick

Observations on a Kitchen Window*

by Patricia Anne McGoldrick

On the sliding glass panes

above the stainless steel sink

There is a pattern

So precise in its definition—

Trapezoids and squares and angular gizmos

All crisp in their glory

Set in their rays, just

Defying the January sun

To start a meltdown!

What a nice visual, especially at Christmastime. Winter provides so much inspiration.
