In shadow
the Le Luxe Hotel
a shutter
slides open
I see a figure in gray
reach out a sure hand

assess the
likelihood of rain –
a gesture
pencil sketch
lightly drawn against the clouds –
The shutter slides shut.

    • Thank you. One day I read the word Deluxe as Le Luxe and for some reason that made me think of a hotel and this whole scene came into my head, and I don’t know why any of it happened, yet I feel I just described what I felt from inside me. It seemed important to get this out into the world and I still don’t know where it came from.
