OctPoWriMo, Day 25 (Poem 24)

ReclaimingOpening

Clouds part like curtains
Sunshine, golden yellow
Spills out like butter

Her lips part in thought
A candy-hint pink of tongue
Feels too intimate

The door opening
Startles the cat; give me hope
That you have come home


This was written for OctPoWriMo, 31 poems in 30 days.  This one was written to the prompt “opening,” three takes on the theme in haiku.
