clock strikes seven
sleeper doesn't stir
earth keeps rotating

(In which I dream of sleeping in...)


  1. This morning's offering makes me laugh! This morning when I woke up, I thought, "Why did I schedule the dog to be clipped at 8:30 on Saturday morning?" This last week is hard. Two more days…


    Watching heads bent together
    giggling, I wonder when
    children became data points?

    1. When?, indeed. Feeling that disconnect these days!

  2. Yes! Also looking forward to those days, Mary Lee.

    Here's mine about all the "stuff" that needs to be done before school break. No actual snow here (now); the image came from a few weeks earlier when we actually had some snow on the ground. It seemed like it fit the tasks that are life right now!

    undone chores
    grow like bamboo
    over the window ledge
    a cranefly peers
    at the falling snow
