A Good Day to Just Curl Up.........

Maybe it's the call of the ravens
through the window opening
Or the need for just one more doze
and a dream or two I was hoping

No I don't feel the need to move
or prove anything to anyone
Nor change the course of history
I'm under no one's gun

Just once to change the pattern
of my ingrained behavior
Just once the day is for me
independence is my savior

The coolness of the pillow the warm
comforter enwraps my dreams
And away I go ...just for me
dropping away between the seams

Good Morning (ahorseback), I'm seriously considering doing the same, waking with a headache is purely no fun..it can sink any boat. A lovely piece, thanks for sharing, and dream a little dream for me,

I did the same thing--curled up again, since I didn't have anything pressing to do. Love, from Paradise.

chspublish , So true , That moment I love is when I read myself to sleep at night . That half awake hour where the words become mixed with thoughts and the warmth of the bed and promise of rest. "I'll be back" though.

Oh, to the land of nod this sleepy head will go, curl up warmly under the cover, surrounded with fluffy pillows, slumber in the night until the next day.

Sleep is what my body is craving and you see it in my eyes that are bulging...

Lovely piece ahorseback. Up and sharing!

I love it!

Yesterday and today, I felt I just miss the bed too much...feeling its most comfort hugs. Getting up past 10 in the morning, ate cereal and scrambled eggs, a quick peek on FB and HP, got back to bed curled underneath the warmth of the duvet sending and wrapping me so snugged in it, continued reading a ghost book but soon I dropped it and fell to sleep with some loving to hug next to me. Lovely days indeed!

Awesome! I'm wide awake right now...and soon in the next 7 hours...
