a splendid sky in summer

sunrise pulls me
from a deep
and very pleasing slumber,
dreaming of a sunny day,
a splendid sky
in summer…
passing by the window
i see winter’s been employed
covering the hemisphere
i recently enjoyed,
working til the wee hours
blinding eyes
with ceaseless white,
winter’s had a rather busy night…
snow that bends the willow,
masquerades the field
i’m tempted by my pillow

and i yield
