another Magpie inspired post

A jump and a fort
Soft wrinkled security
Sandy at the bottom
Worn to perfection
Necessary patch
All the things it could be to me

Rain outside
Clink clink clink
Heavy lids
Good book resting purposefully on my chest
Story inspired dreams
All the things it could be to me

Reclined inclined declined
Blood flowing
Top to the bottom
Bottom to top
Rumbles rhythmic pattern

Touching loving
Dreaming cuddling
Wrapped in a cotton sari
Covers dusting the floor
The bulk puddle there
Pillows lost
All the things it could be to me

I love the flow of your Magpie .. it is lovely!

(I noticed on your profile you are from Springfield, MO. My mother and step-father lived in Buffalo 35 years ... both are deceased now. I love that part of Missouri!)

Helen I am originally from San Diego but moved here in 2003. It is a different world here and I must admit it takes some getting used to. Much slower pace but it does leave a lot of time for creating and exploring.

I like this! It reminded me of when I went back to school and used my bed as my place to read, write and create.... a bed is a place for more than dreams

Lovely. I especially like "soft wrinkled security".
