Backyard Snooze

Written for:  Sunday Whirl #489

Words:  check, dry, sleeping, haze, spine, silence,
        risk, bank, when, yard, metal, head

He sleeps in silence,
spine curved under 
a hazy sun.  His head
rests on a peacock
blue backyard pillow.
Far in the distance,
a bank of mountains
wears a metallic
gleam when the sun
nudges haze aside.
He opens an eye
to check the dry sky,
and decides he can
risk a longer snooze
in silence.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    One of the luxuries in life is to have forty winks where possible. In view of the lockdown, it may be over indulgence in some cases. Nice write Sara!
