Time for Drowsy

Time for Drowsy

Time for drowsy
to yawn and stretch
and burrow under quilts
against a winter chill…
to think of brown bats
close folded into caves
or cooing doves
all snugged in cotes
with easy breaths
and resting hearts.

Time for drowsy
to calm anxiety…
forget the stress of time
think seconds and not days
pearl quiet not brass noise.

For there will come a morning
to waken to warm kisses
and welcome restlessness
and quicken back to life.
