Something Under My Pillows

My bed, new, free of past pain
Cherry posts,
simple solid smooth
Black iron at head and foot
just enough of the feminine
yet simple strong
It is meant to frame art
creations in fabric and yarns
Today it is clothed in lilac sheets
lilac and cream on pillows
cream colored oh so soft blanket
Topped with a bit of art
crocheted in one huge square
colors from dark to heathers
a field of purples and lilacs
pinks and yellows hidden here and there
designed only as I worked
beginning to end.
(Sshhh! There is something
under my pillows of lilac and cream
there I save my dreams
and take them out sometimes
to look at them again
and remember how they feel.
