Changing Sleep

Postby Don Schaeffer » Sun Dec 20, 2015 1:11 pm

You can see
how small he is
against the backdrop of the forest
on an island
in the northern ocean
of the tiny planet.
The 932 year old self
dreams of the times
when fears were fresh;
taken by sudden fatigue
climbs into his narrow bed
carefully curling his knees,
pulls his private
coverlet over and falls asleep.
And the sleep
changes to something
deeper.
Don
