Percale

by Alex Smyth

Sometimes~
When the air is very cold...
And the covers are very warm...

In that mystical moment in time called waking-
(Where is meets think)

My body lies like rich warm molasses between the sheets.

*Sigh*...looking at the wind, and rainy darkness outside I'm wishing that I was still beneath the blankets! A timely post indeed!

Quite an analogy! Cold outside those covers. Body wants to stick to those covers! Yeah, yeah!

Is meets think.... a lot to think about on that phrase. Many things to be derived and re-thought. Great verse that holds my mind hostage to thought.

while you dream warm dreams in yours, I toss and roll in mine, like the sea. A beautiful, upon rising poem.
