Under the Blankets #SOL

 I could be under the blankets watching my favorite Netflix show, but instead I am sitting on Zoom experiencing one of my favorite slices of life - time with my TeachWrite friends.  

I have been enjoying the daily prompts provided by my fellow writer-friend Leigh Anne Eck.  Today's prompt is "under the blankets."  This was perfect for this time of year because I love my fuzzy blanket sheets.   As always, I tend to think in poetry.  

Under the blankets 
is where I love to be

and the dreams of slumber.

Peacefully, I slip into sleep
wrapped in the embrace
of my warm fuzzy blankets.
