Poetry Friday: Nighttime


You’re wrapped in me,
in the quilt,
in snowflakes.

Steady breaths disrupt the stillness
of my chest.

I study your untroubled eyelids.

Past the window,
snow glitters in streetlight.

Warm breaths cover my lips,
and I close my eyes.

If you read this poem, whom did you picture? Mother and child? Owner and pet? Partners? What else? Think about it.

(I pictured either a mother and baby or elderly partners.)
