small stone 13

squeezed like sardines in a can
the sleeping children on the floor

all jumbled up
in blankets and pillows

i lean in,
just to hear them breathe
and drink in peaceful faces


  1. Sleepover? Last time my daughter had one of those it took forever until they were finally sleeping. But, yeah, those peaceful faces when they are sleeping are precious.

  2. Actually, it's just my own sleeping on the floor at Grandma's house! That's even better!
