the best hour
it’s dark out when i wake up these days. the sun used to help me rise, but now it’s chilly and dark. this morning my blanket wasn’t situated ideally. there was a chill seeping in. i thought to adjust it, but realizing i was mostly conscience, i figured my alarm would soon sound.
not worth it to get cozy and warm.
i turned over to check the time. there was still a whole hour till it was time to get up. i adjusted the blanket, rolled over into a dreamily comfy position and closed my eyes.
as i lilted back to sleep i thought how perfect it would be for my dog to curl up near my legs as she often does.
as if she read my thoughts, she jumped up and nestled in near my knees.
the warmth magnified, and i fell back asleep for another beautiful hour.
