Tree of Sleep

Tree of Sleep

A Poem by Raevyne

ily alliteration


Snuggled deep in Shangri-La

Swoons a sapling, every sweeping limb

Styled from storybooks, sweet twilight

It's leaves curl like sleeping kittens

Every vein slow, sanguine

In it's roots nest our offerings 

Chamomile, valium, teddy bears

Dry books, full stomachs, hot baths

The scent of lavender incense winds

Around it's dandelion-fluff bark

It's fruit is velvet poison

Wooing you to dreams.

i like it, i have to admit i don't really understand it, but i like the way its sounds out loud.
forgive my apparent stupidity, i'm only sleep deprived, much too tired to try to make sense of anything... and i continue to ramble...haha
