until they wake.

Standard

’twas new year’s eve at the lake house

and two of our

fellow celebratory foot soldiers

and their loyal dog were down 

though they made a miraculous comeback 

returning to the fray for the midnight hour

and it was something to behold.

“forgive me if I sleep until I wake up. “

wake up call

Standard

very recently – warm and easy near the equator, nice way to wake up,

with a call from the sea, bringing news of a day,

where the biggest question is which size coconut to choose.

and even more recently –  warm and tucked in, home again in the great white north,  nice way to wake up,

with a call from the weather robot, bringing news of a snow day off of school

where the biggest question is which size down comforter to choose.
