folding, fitted

 

morning. i am still
listening to the moon.

when we cannot find the day’s center,
we change the sheets,

create a ballooned fort of warmth
and clothes-pinned sun.

nothing else is solvable
or solvent, perhaps.

but we marvel in percale perfection,
crisp beige corners.

    Nice technique: “when we cannot find the day’s center,
    we change the sheets,”

    I’ve been listening to the moon in the morning a lot lately. Maybe I should try changing the sheets…the images and memories your poem elicited are gorgeous! Brought a warm snuggle to my day. Thank you!

  6. Ooh, clothes-pinned sun. Beautiful.

  7. Misky says:

    That second stanza is wonderful.

  8. Jules says:

    Sheets right out of the dryer… smell wonderful (or off a line dried by the sun).
    Any sheet or blanket for an indoor tent city… priceless.

  9. Violet Lentz says:

    Oooo very nicely done!

  10. I do love fresh sheets… the scent and the sense make me want to go to bed.
