To Sleep Perchance

Shadows arose
consciousness fled
The pillow rose
to meet my head
All noted by
the bluest eye
with Persian fur

(C) Stephen W. Buchanan 2019

In response to the 17 August daily prompt at the Brave & Reckless blog and based on the title of a seminal feminist book ‘The Bluest Eye’ by Toni Morrison.
