nap time

a child is sleeping
it is summer

his arms are stretched above his head
his fingers twitch
his leg hangs off the bed
his knees are bent

a child is sleeping under a blanket
it is colorful

he is peaceful
he is worryless
he is natural
he is dreaming

a child is skating in his dream
it is Saturday

he counts his wheels
he tightens his straps
he stands on his heels
he bends his knees

a child is skating
it is Sunday

his mind goes round and round
his head is a roller rink
his dream takes him to a roller town
his sleep is a skate without a stopper
