Of bedtime, and all times: Five Sentence Fiction

From Lillie McFerrin Writes, comes Five Sentence Fiction: it's about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist.  This week's prompt is 'Bedtime'; here is my response:

Lillie McFerrin Writes

All the times.

Those moments between waking and alarm; treasured like ballet flats that don't pinch - so divine.
The first taste of coffee, a caffeine jolt; tastes of necessity and attitude - it's sublime.
Take a midday pause, look up, draw breath- breathe a sigh.
Bath time and story; plump cheeks, fluffy hair - child of mine.
Feathers and cotton; warmth and comfort - bedtime.


  1. So beautifully written! I loved your choice of words and the sheer love palpable in the post. :)

  2. Thank you very much, Deboshree. I appreciate the comment, and thanks for stopping by the Lighthouse.

  3. And there it is, a perfect day. Sublime indeed.

  4. I was thinking that, too, Nancy. "Yes please; I'll have that!"
