baby nature’s teething pains
edges sharpness and spring
healing from frost bitten winter
slumbering land and life green
coming back again and again
holding back a deep sigh
waiting to see how it turns
inside out before waking
these last few moments last
tossing and turning under
wishing to stay covered warm
awake before the damn alarm
tired but tired of sleeping
still sleepy but not asleep
wondering how long to stay
hoping the cat won’t notice
the change in my breathing
