Slicing Fruit

Day 8, PAD Challenge. Prompt: A "ready to celebrate" poem.

all is in readiness, the curtains
pulled to permit the first light

of Spring in, as she, green-gowned,
slices fruit and counts the

bright slashes of silver marking
the cloth, mirrors reflecting the

face of the sun, the brightness,
the long-hoped-for, the prodigal

returned home, her hair in
pincurls, the lining of her cases

ripped out, time to celebrate indeed
