The Dream

She was sleeping.

He was living a dream.

She was close.

He moved closer.

She had set the mood earlier in the day.

He continued to set the mood after dark.

She was sleeping.

He wrapped his arm around her on a cool quiet evening.

She turned away and wrapped herself in a blanket, “Sorry, not today.”

He continued to dream, “I should have packed more blankets.”
