night settles around me
warm and inviting

until I snuggle down
into its velvetine fur

a trusting child
eager to release

the weight and weariness
day imposes upon us all

eager to let fly
the ribbon of consciousness

night’s clumsy paw
keeps retrieving for me

    1. Oh, you are so sweet to mention the ribbon…I kept imagining something, something by which we all connect to one another, a level of wakefulness at least…and ribbons just felt nice in my childlike hand. Blessings to you, sweet child and companion!
