is a hideaway
from another day of why.
interrupted life.

tangled sheets lover
meets. In dreams alone for now.
soon arms wrapped instead.

Bed me gently on
your pillowchest. Heartbeat song
repeats lullaby.

rest well in slumber
tiny babe. What dreams do you
abide? teddy bears?

satin sheets impress
me not the least when empty.
dreaming of your warmth.

I leave land and light
Go off to un-seen deep night
Flying insight dreams

Beautiful, Mark, as usual.

two have more to do
with staying awake than sleep
rest afterward dream

still they bedward call
to all young lovers and old
sleeping warm not cold

criticize, I'll not
your prose always warms the heart
mem'rys of longing

These are wonderful.
