[ Classic Corner ] All Night Slumber Party

I pond-ered as if rain---    
my wits slowly gathering; shape    
shifting consciousness expanding;    
coming to more senses than    
I was previously aware of.    
Embraced against bosom in welcoming arms,    
the Earth invited me to take rest in her cottage,    
yet we ended up chatting all night      
under a raftered porch of branches   
frosted with moonlight and starfire white;    
illuminated miniature kingdoms everwhere    
about us guarded by little moth-men    
and counseled by wise owl guardians.    
When morning came --- who knew
sleeping in the forest    
would be so enchanting?
