Hibernation

Waiting
for the rain
to turn to snow
overnight,

on the eve 
of a weekend
set aside for writing.

Tonight,
as the world freezes over,
I crave 
deep 
sleep,

restoring 
wells of creativity
drained 
in recent days.

In the morning,
I will be ready.

Watching the snow fall,

insulated
from the real world,

with space
to imagine new ones.

    How absolutely beautiful. The way your images were juxtaposed to the lyrical quality of your poetry almost seemed more like music.

    Reading it gave me chills. I easily and quickly related to each stanza and appreciated the time you put into capturing the essence of hibernation’s simplicity and complexity.

    The quality of your craft is a testament to your thoughtfulness.

    I loved it… Thank you so much for sharing.

    I love the image of ‘wells’ of creativity and a testament to the rejuvenation that comes with sleep. Hope you can snuggle in! 🙂
