thin lines

pulling into the quietness
the raindrops intensify
beating the sill suddenly like
thousands of butterfly wings
jasmine mint tea steeping
old china cup, clotted cream
a book with a broken spine
read again, and again, again
old pencil markings outline
important passages throughout
thin lines remember you there
