"Sheets and Diamonds"

Tucked in bed
Green and brown  heads and toes
Protruding from the white linens
Come and see
The sleeping oaks and lilac bushes
Swaying to their gentle snores
Eyes mesmerized
Crystals decorate hairs, toes, and linens
Glimmering - reflections of light
Watch with me
Tranquility mixed with daily activity
As diamonds decorate white linens
