Snuggled in my quilt
Like a child
While the wind howls
Its misery
So sublime
ToΒ be quiet, settled
For a time

So warm and enfolded
Still, as though
Expecting a moment
To arrive
Sleep beckons
Like a playful friend
Drawing me down
To silence
In the end

Of all moments
In a sometimes scarred life
This most pure
And hopeful
Protected and calm
Hear the rain
As it batters
The streets and garden below
This is peace
I can know

    Love these images… reminding me of tucking (hiding) under the covers as a child.. the safe place from monsters in the dark of night… and the lovely sound of rain on the roof outside, a knowing that one is safe inside… lovely.
