Image for the poem rituals of goodnight

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.
