truly good-night

peace sings us lullabies

golden blankets of NOW shimmer and sigh complete acceptance with every breath

our stories hang on with all their might

clinched nails into the craigs of all that is “ours”

we’re 3 year olds screaming, crying, laughing, running ’round the bed of All That Is

“one more!!!….” this or “one more!!!” that….

but

Love has no pocket watch and the stars are made of patience

eventually….All of Us

joyfully

      Gosh….right? Sleep IS becoming an ultimate luxury!!! Never thought it would be a challenge for me. Sigh. 😅 I was referring to surrendering to the moment….to just Being here without all the relentless, useless and silly mind chatter/drama that goes on and on and on and on and on….🤣❤️🤗

    You have established that it is a fundamental truth that:
    Love has no pocket watch and the stars are made of patience.
    I accept that without question!

    Excellent, Katy! I really, really like it. 💕 I understood the idea of the painting even before I read your poem. It does have that serene, between the sleepy eyelashes look. And writing surrender vertically… brilliant!
