Read Write Prompt #17: Dream Prompts For A Long Winter’s Nap.

Hypnos and Pasithea.

You exist in the spell of sunset hours:
The softness of silken sheets, freshly warmed;
The slow, steady shine of a candle’s flame,
Gently soothing away all earthly ills.

You exist in the spell of sunset hours:
The whispers between lovers, the smiles, sex.
The soft-burning love of childhood sweethearts,
That sensuality, awaiting sparks.

You exist in the spell of sunset hours:
The sympathies of nurses, breathing soft
So as not to disturb the sleeping child;
His glassy eyes reflect the world of dreams.

You exist.
