the moon is full

la lune is extra beautiful tonight
glowing golden
with a halo of moonbeams
in a blue hued nighttime sky
hope you can find a moment
and moon gaze too
full dark is just now falling
perfect for sweet dreams
yet also made for howling
your choice
goodnight

KRB: Gdnt. Ly.

Love you too
It started snowing
Gently
Lightly
Pretty l’il flakes
Nothing that seems menacing

10:40pm
We’ll know more in the morning
Predictions made for the amount of snowfall and subzero temps had people buying groceries until the shelves were literally empty
I stayed home
Evening napped
We have enough
Even if we are snowed in for a few days and run out of stuff
We’ll be OK
My boys and I
Human and canine kind
Cat too
We’re “all good”
Goodnight

dream time

lullaby and goodnight
starlight and moonbeam dreams
float along on Cloud 9
behind your closed eyelids
as your mind whirs a l’il less and slowly spins
smiles and sweetly whispered words sent your way like a soothing balm
may solid black zzzzz’s find you
so that when morning comes you stretch and yawn and are ready to tackle the dawn
‘cause you are sated, rested and smiling instead of growling
lullaby and goodnight
starlight and moonbeam dreams
to You
~ Me

it was a Zebra Socks kind of day here
kind of wild at times, though not exotic
I was thankful for their warmth
in the melting snow drizzle
their whimsy made me grin
as I moved about the house
in my zebra stockinged feet
and remembered
the zebra skin
yes, from A Real Zebra
that hung on the wall
next to my bed
during my teen years
brought home from Africa
during my aunt’s Peace Corps years
all that, from a pair of socks
fashioned from black and white fibers
I’m sleepin’ in them too
it’s time for Zebra Dreams
goodnight

bedtime tonight

tonight as I tucked him in,

my eight year old son,

his eyes lookin’ wide awake

my eye lids feelin’ heavy

he said, “My body clock

is on Tokyo time.”

well, that would explain it

I stretched out

beside him

and whispered

I love you

close your eyes

think happy thoughts

have good dreams

I’ll see you

in the mornin’

I may have dozed

for just a bit

fleece pjs on now

warmin’ up some

my pillow

is callin’

goodnight
