With eyes barely open,
Perchance to dream,
Her head lowers slowly
In moonlight’s beam.

The book not yet tabled,
Reader’s voice soft and low,
The words unheard,
Letters not in a row.

A scene shifts and dances,
on eyelids so heavy,
Dreams meet the conscious,
Fiction tide pools eddy.

Sleep settles in,
Content to take charge,
Breaths deep and long,
Giving needed recharge.
