Fly on Skylight

Dizzily spinning, the fly rises upward,
Drawn toward the skylight window.
Suction-cupped upside down,
With compound eyes she contemplates
The hallowed morning light,
Unknowing that a mere five millimeters
Of clear hardened silicon separate
That delicate body
From freshly fallen
Snow and sleet.
