Afternoon Nap

Earlier today, I spoke of chores and cats and books. Tonight, I do the same, albeit from a different point-of-view.

Afternoon Nap

Like a lazy cat,
I sink deep
into a soft chair
warmed with a blanket

of sun and shadow
near an open book
with brittle pages,
etched with a forgotten ink:

spells and rhymes
that once turned
the meaty hides of trolls
to stone,

cooled the hearts
of dragons,
and sugared the minds
of poets with sleep.
