“In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts bring sad thoughts to the mind.” William Wordsworth

What Power Is This?

I'm trying to trace the moment
when my mood changed,
there I was smiling to myself,
at peace while enjoying a book,
when a movement caught my eye,
why is it that the subtle movement
of the curtain derailed my mood?
What power is this?

  3. I love the simplicity and truth/acknowledgement of this phenomenon.


  4. There’s something about white curtains, isn’t there? I’ve had more than one otherworldly experience featuring them.


  5. For me, tech glitches can mean curtains for my good mood!
