Sleeping Hydrangeas

Blue flowers
Soft blue
Like
A baby blanket
Staring at them
Sitting on
My computer screen
And wishing to sink in
At this time
Of 11:30 PM
 .
Eyes
Swirling
In a wetness
Akin
To the dew
On the virtual flowers
 .
With lids
Closing
On eyes
As blue
As the hydrangeas
 .
But then
They slip
The eyes slip
Onto the artificial white
Of the Word Document
That unfinished essay
Calling
A due date
Tomorra’
 .
The
Blue blanket
On the bed behind
Also calling
Begins to swirl
Past the dewy eyes
Into
The tired mind
 .
Making it seem
As if
The blue
Hydrangeas
Of the computer
Are calling
To the shores
Of white sleep

  1. Blue blanket
    On the bed behind
    Also calling
    Begins to swirl
    Past the dewy eyes
    Into
    The tired mind

    As often happens we doze off while dainty little fingers are still clicking on the key-board. The tired mind fights hard! Nicely!
