rituals of goodnight

barely feeling the weight    
thin, soft material    
cool against clean supple skin,    
covers just enough,   
if needed    
humming from above    
sweet smelling air circulates    
smallish breezes,  
constructing the perfect climate  
to address the night    
soft, firm welcoming  
sublimely supports idyllic comfort  
chilled and tempting    
goosebumps pebble in punctuations  
a relaxing....s l o w ...exhale    
escapes by languid whisper    
darkness envelopes    
pops of starlight twinkle in purpose    
behind off white gossamer    
an ambience tenderly soothes   
creating unspoken wonder    
sounds of music tinkle  
calm all that calls for rest's release  
back and forth i rock myself    
in time to my own nightingale's tune    
-a habit done absent mindedly-    
as are all these lone rituals    
which welcome the moon
assisting easier sleep
be caught amongst the stars    
steadily being of the dark
spilling each one of my secrets    
within the dreams    
of my wistful night's landscape.
