Simply 6 Minutes – Sweet Dreams

Inspired by and written for Simply 6 Minutes – thank you, Christine

Another Rob Gonslaves painting puts a grin on my face, I think I am not the only fan of his illusionary art. That doesn’t mean this will be easy and no way this sonnet will be done in 6 minutes but let’s see how it goes.

Sweet Dreams
Form: 12 Step Sonnet 2

‘Good night, my child, may all your dreams be sweet
Let the day go to shadows of the night’
Soft words whispered behind the bedside lamp
As my eyes close I feel cold on my feet
Hidden beneath sheets within the dim light
The feather soft pillows begin to feel damp
I sit up in my bed breathing the breeze
While pulling up my warm blanket of snow
I hear the rustling of white trimmed trees
And look to the light for the way to go
A child again in a world at its ease
Ready to play wherever the winds blow
Imagination in a land of dreams
There is nothing here that is what it seems

Word count: 117
Time: 18 minutes and 20 seconds, just slightly faster than last week
