veil.

While watching the light fabric move,
in rhythm with the breeze,

carries the voices of a neighborhood,
children laughing, fireworks cracking,
grown-voiced discussion over wine,
the song of cicadas, crickets, fireflies,
even the lonely frogs rejoice the summer evening,
of which I listen to, not partake in,
through the veil of open windows.
