    feeling the rhythm and the raindrops
    the musical chime of the vertical blinds
    as the breeze flows through our bedroom window
    silently caressing all of our skins
    different shades and hues
    beats per minute…breathing
    in the king size bed
    arms and legs everywhere

    throughout the day, the wear and tear
    of school and rules
    of work and stress
    this is where we all come to rest
    the breeze flows through the windows
    lingers momentarily on fresh hair cuts

    ruffles the cover of many pillows
    of baby powder
    of long t-shirts
    of action figures and toy cars
    often times we don’t have time
    so sometimes our family sleeps together
    to gain strength for another day
