Toss Turn Toss Turn

Advent Poems Day One

 

Toss turn toss turn

 

Windows closed, curtains drawn

Light from next door creeps inside

Through recalcitrant little gaps

Under crumpled sheets I lie

Feet hanging out

 

Toss turn toss turn

 

Eyes follow the intruding light

Trace the path of the ceiling fan

Stirring humid air and dust

Sweat and sleep

Make for strange bedfellows

 

Toss turn toss turn

 

Nightmare creatures stir

Sing and dance upon the mattress

Restless feet tap in time

A frenetic chorus of the dark

The reels of dream spin on

 

Toss turn toss turn

 

Toss turn toss turn

 

Toss turn toss turn
