Light in the Window
by Marge Simon

Dream a memory of clouds that chase the moon, of winds outside a house that knew a devastating war.
On the second floor, a window lights, silhouetting the form of a seated woman in a long dress. Her head is bowed low, her hands clasped as if in prayer.  A tree bough bends and breaks. Soon it’s swept by gusts to rest against a tombstone in the family plot.
The inscription on the stone is weathered and pock-marked by Minie balls. From this grave, a phantom rises in the wind. Not of this world, the wind does not affect its composition– a confederate soldier missing an arm, his uniform in shreds.
Above, the woman’s shadow rises and looks out the window. She touches her lips as she waves a handkerchief before floating down to join him.
