RACHAEL PETRIDIS

     kitchen windows

kitchen windows hang in art galleries
            outside becomes inside
a plum tree ushers pink blossom
            a geranium flares cardinal against the glass
lace ferns feather the sill
            oranges cast perfumed light
honeyeaters tap at moths
 
a mother works here
            silent as the moving years
close to the faint breath
            of mint and rosemary
fading in a light that filters
            minutes into hours
her blade, grate-sharp against the board
            a woman works here
sedulous as the spider spinning in her window
            its fine silk shimmering through the pane
