MMMMMMMMMM
Stretching bare legs
Between flannel sheets
So warm from the night
All sleepy like a cat
Maybe even purring a little
Nestling under the quilts
The tip of my nose so cold
As I turn to press it
Against your skin
Hands sliding under the covers
Towards you
Eyes still closed
As I find your side empty
I hear the fire crackling
Children's voices
The gurgle of a coffee pot
Smiling to myself
Knowing this is just a delicious dream
I drift towards sleep again
Then I hear you say my name
Peering up
Through sleep drugged eyes
I focus on your smile
As you bend to kiss me awake

I'm shivering cold here reading this, and now I'm even colder...thanks for nothing. Good poem, Izzy, even if I only wish I had flannel sheets.

I disagree with Michael - this is a good "warm up" piece.

Beautiful, my bed is my "cocoon" too, I am thankful for the smooth cotton sheets, (pure white) and for the luxurious blanket as I snuggle deeper putting off rising...and for the warm man who welcomes me into his arms each morning.

Ahhhh I am heading to bed at this very moment...and this makes me want to snuggle in flannel sheets! Of course, being in Florida, I'd have to turn the air conditioner down to the penguin setting to get the right effect! *LOL*

Great poem Izzy...a perfect way to end my night
