Tales of the wind

Wringing life dry, day takes a break

Thoughts buried deep in fatigue’s blanket

Nothing to do, one strains to hear

Faint whispers of the breeze

Alas it’s a jumble when heard clear

Sounds and syllables randomly stirred

Making no sense

One panics in fear that they did miss

Beautiful tales that breeze carried

Of alternate worlds and realities

More benevolent and tender than ours

As night moves on earth shuffles in sleep

Duvet of sky moves with it

Not leaving it exposed

While one struggles to keep

Their feet tucked in

Lying wide awake
