Shadows Sleep

One Single Impression: Ochre

and I would lay me down
in leaves of ochre and pine green
soft forest shadows all around
cool and misty dreams

and as the shadows grow
midnight blue and charcoal deep
fear is driven far below
enfolded in the wings of sleep

  1. Jae Rose reminds me of a prayer we used to say when we were little..’as I lay thee down to shall angels safely keep..'(if memory serves me right, it was many, many years ago)..Jae

      Oh Jae – I remember that prayer. The next part always frightened me a little – “if I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take.”
