I saw her by the kitchen window,
hands engaged in fixing dinner,
a whistle from her lips embroidering
the night air. Breaking into song, her
face a portrait of beauty and grace.
Hands in soapsuds now, cleaning
dishes then wiping them dry with
the care she would exercise as if
she were dabbing away a child's
tears. Pots and pans now scrubbed 
to mirror cleanliness she placed 
them lovingly back on their shelves, 
flicks off the switch, plunging the room 
into darkness, the music receding 
as she moved from the kitchen 
into the living room, gradually 
disappearing until it was if she had 
never been there. Only her fragrance
