By the time I reach here
It’s all over
The knock knock shells
Have all slipped away 
Two to the left
Three to the right
Without even asking 
Who’s there
While one little straggler
Waits it out 
Remains in sight
But somewhere 
In the middle of my steps 
He falls away too
Into the great mirrored deep 
That is his whole wide world
And, I can only be part of it
When I am long and fast asleep

      1. I’m looking forward to a nap and usually dive straight into bed on Mondays after the bus leaves. Some Idjit (me) made a doctor’s appointment for my monthly pain pump refill for this morning, so I’m currently sitting in a waiting room. At least the idjit scheduled it for early… get it over with😉🌻💖

      2. They were running late☹ I got home from my 9am appointment (10 miles away, straight down the freeway) at 10:30am😠. I don’t even see a doctor. An R.N. does the procedure which takes maybe 15 minutes total. At least there was no traffic this morning. It can take 45 minutes to drive that 10 miles some mornings.
        When I got home and changed out of my ‘public’ clothes into my comfies and spent a few minutes with the Big Dumb Dog (who thought I was gone FOREVER and was overjoyed to see me again) and dealt with Sven the Bearded Dragon, who needed to be fed… I was awake. I started to get dozey just about the time Ben got on the bus to come home🤷🏼‍♀️
        I predict an involuntary nap within 30 minutes of his bedtime😉😴😴🤣

      3. Big Dumb Dogs are like that 😂. I thought you were never coming back!! Ugh…traffic and late and all manner of such things 🙁 More traffic here all the time. I guess it’s not just here 😄 it’s everywhere…sitting at a stand still. Hoping involuntary nap was successfully achieved! 🥳😴😜
