A Grand Arabesque

This was simply
One of those little things

My mother did
Unnoticed by others

Yet filed in some recessed
Portion of my brain

Suddenly this morning
As I ran my own vacuum

On the living room rug
An image poked me:

Her wrist flicking the
Electrical cord of her Hoover

Between the wall outlet
And her fingers

Making a grand arabesque
Of momentary duration
