A Blessing for Sleep

Hong Kong, March 22nd, 2018

When sleep falls,

May it be the sleep

That comes after a

Journey through wild places

To the house seen lit

through a window from afar.

Warmed before a fire

Scented in woodsmoke

Boots off, socks off,

Toes wriggling in delight before the crackle of wood

The dance of flame

Hot chocolate in your veins,

Down soft bed

Of white clean sheets

The steady sound of heavy rain, on roof and window.
