suddenly parting
the billowed curtains release
a late summer breeze

    a stream of daylight
    curtains closed

    "There came a day when the clouds drifting along with the wind aroused a wanderlust in me, and I set off on a journey to roam along the seashores."

    feeling the breeze
    though inside
    behind closed windows
