Sunlight Through Curtain Seams

A silhouetted person stares up at the stars and universe.

Sent to bed and grounded
The fading sun rays spy
through translucent seams
A wasted evening dies

Friends outside still playing
Their sky bound laughter soars
past my open window
through birdsong, giggles roar

Underneath my blanket
behind the curtain’s veil
I give up on today
Let tomorrow’s dreams set sail
