Sleeping Loose

I love the idea of sleeping loose rather than sleeping tight. I close the evening email to a friend with the wish “sleep loose.” Tonight I decided to explore that notion a bit…to see what it might look like.

sleeping loose

when you hear
the sparkle
of dreams a’coming
and see the wide, free colors
of the tracks ahead
and jump the train steaming
wishes and tomorrows
and you feel the wind
laughing and praying
and wrapping in love
anyone who aches
and you notice that the air
tastes a bit like peppermint.
