snoozing

The sun is buried deep

in clouds and fog

but light as soft as my pillow

spills green over the room.

 

Fingertip raindrops

tap-tap-tap the skylight

as drizzle shimmers

on the leaves outside

my open windows.

 

When the tinny alarm shrieks

I hit snooze without debate.

 

Five more minutes, then five minutes more

delaying the rush of Monday morn.
