[ CC ] 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?
