My pillow caresses my head

Whispering, “It’s time to come to bed.”

I nod sleepily and nozzle in

Creating a cocoon in my blanket

I’m preparing to fall asleep

But there’s a brightness penetrating my eyelids

I peek out of one eye

I’ve forgotten the darn light!

Screw it. It can wait until morning.

I throw my blanket over my head

And let the sleep carry me off

To a place I can drift on the waves of my subconscious.
