During Winter vacation
I indulge my hibernation
Inside my burrowed den of antiquity
with smatterings of serendipity
I wrap in fuzzy, furry stuff
and cuddle down in pillow fluff
I close my eyes with a smile
and simply breathe for a while...
“I sometimes think,”
I say with impish wink
“more often I snore
its hard to ignore”.
I take breaks to feed
(doing my good deed)
demonstrating affection
for those under my care and protection
With extra touches now that time abides
I say you're loved by details to the sides
A whole day I can nestle
if the whole day before I did bustle
about my burrow collecting
all my fairy dusting
from off of whims
and prims
to practicals
in with all my mysticals
and pieces of heaven
The walls of my winter warren
reach round and snug you
plants seeking warm refuge hug you
Colors calm and excite
a snowdrift's reflecting light
Warmth in a golden shaft
absorbed by a golden cat
I cast half open eyes about
remembering tales of trees hollowed out
into little homes of nook and cranny
and rocking chairs with a Granny
Or perhaps a burrow deep
where in beds under blankets they all did sleep
There is always a pot on the fire
in this home of  heart's desire
from my Wee One imagination
books and animation
I doze off in my childhood contents
and days of innocence
peaceful without care
Not unlike a hibernating mother bear

Thanks Rex! I like to think I take relaxation to a point somewhere past yoga and just this side of rigor mortis, LOL!!

If you get up to mix a drink every so often, you'll stave off rigor mortis

Luminosity sometimes you just have to take a sick day when you aren't, to stay healthy.
I'm fortunate in that I won't go back to work until Jan. 6th. This really is MY vacation. I so have every intention of enjoying it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this "rhyming" poem. You outdid yourself.

Ida and Michael, Emma, James and Yann,

Thank you all so much for your kind comments.  I'm especially glad you liked this one. I am a bit reclusive when it comes to having people over.  Now I feel like you have all stopped in for a visit!
Thanks for stopping by!

Lori
