Pleat

.

Fold back time

like a pleat

in a blanket

shifting sunlight

to morning

and hauling evening

ever closer

.

Living the same hour over

a luxury to savour

a bonus hour to play with

or sleep seamlessly through

.

Time to think of hibernation

slow things down

turn up the heat

read a book

bake some bread

learn to knit

walk the dog

.

Fold back time

like a pleat

in a blanket

to a simpler way

of being satisfied

unconcerned with trappings

or looks

.

Waking with the sun

embracing the day

.
