Moving Nursery

Sing us a song to sleep
With the soft sweet sound
Of wheel on rail

Hum us your wonderful white noise
Heat in the winter; AC in the summer
Keep us warm or cool and comfortable

Let us rest on your welcoming red lap
Broad and comfortable and cozy even
Relaxing and drifting us off

Rock us gently to sleep
Sway like a mother with a babe on her hip
Until our eyes all flutter shut

Ride through towns and cities
Roll along roads and rivers
Take us gently into the land of dreams

Twitter poems

I’ve been thinking about poetry on twitter for a while. The character limit is an interesting challenge. I posted my first twitter poem tonight:

Fall into bed like a stone into water
Sink swiftly, settle softly
Coated like a rock with the dust of the day
Wait for the cleanse of sleep

I like it and have a few others I am working on. I will have to post them as I can.
