Tale weaver

 

Each night I look forward to bedtime. Snuggling up under the covers makes me feel safe and secure. Safe for at least five or six hours depending on how tired I am. This is when I get to put all my worries aside and escape the daily routine of life as of late.

 

Slumber comes easy

Slipping into my dreamland

Escaping anguish

Hammy the hamster

Was such a little prankster

He hid in dad’s shoe

 

When dad stepped into

Are you ready for this one

Squish, Hammy no more

Windows

Fandango flash fiction

Gazing out window

Watching life passing them by

Wondering outcome

=================

Dolls in a window

For all passers-by to see

Little girls behold

================

Window to our lives

So much passes before us

Not missing anything

================

Wanting to escape

Too far to jump to be free

Someone will see us

==============
