Fingerprints in the Dust


There is a window sill in your room

that missed a dusting a time or two.

I haven’t dusted it since you’ve been gone

for the small prints I see belong to you.


Were you looking at a bird outside,

the day you left your prints behind?

Did you know that someday they would be,

a treasure on this sill for me?

  1. My dad used to ask me not to clean his windows before we left his house because he wanted the little hand prints on them.
