Dreaming of Her on a Winter’s Eve

Noches estrelladas

Omnipresent,

her visage in my dreams,
waking or asleep,
dusky eyes and bowed lips,
thick with frustrated,
almost promises.

Orchids

watching in the background,
laundry tumbling while she sips
milk tinged with coffee,
thinking her own thoughts.

Dreaming

of her, on a winter’s eve.
