Deeper Stillness

My dear friend Mare The Human wrote a poem called Under Covers in 2018 and challenged friends to write something inspired by it. This is my answer to the challenge.

Morning calls me out to play
Lost in the depths of my pillow
I lose my way
Deeper stillness comforting darkness
My nest of blankets hiding my sorrow

Persistent morning calls my name
Come on out! Sieze the day!
One more hour, please, I pray.
Soft, snuggly cover quietly whispers
Stay
The world outside is too loud
Tomorrow is another day

As I burrow deeper still
Drifting, dreams and memories sifting
Sands shifting in my shuttered eyes
Your ghost, your voice
Lifting
Restoring my will
I follow your flight from Neverland
Greeting the morning, I rise

Written January 2018
Based on Mare Martell’s poem ‘Under Covers’ 2018
