Bag Nights

 

Laying atop a tall mountain gazing up at the stars

Hearing  breezes and night sounds near and far

 

The day has been hard and though quite long

I feel fulfilled and fear nothing wrong

 

Thoughts wander back to dainty flowers underfoot

And how carefully I wove thru them avoiding each with my boot

 

And about the steep trail leading up to the pass

Then over the top,  views disappearing woefully fast

 

The dip in the lake,   the clouds overhead

All these thoughts fly by while I’m snuggled in bed

 

The eves gentle breezes sough across my cool face

Thoughts becoming wispy,  becoming spotty as lace

 

All the days exertions of body and mind

Finally allow me to slowly,  slowly unwind

 

And before I even know it,  I’ve drifted far far away

Slumbering peacefully on til the sun’s rays overhead announce the new day.
