as night takes over the day and crickets start to thrum, she softly whispers shushhhhhhhhhhhhh

as thick trees sigh and a breeze bends all their leaves, again, she whispers shushhhhhhhhhhhh

shushhh turns into a purring cat rolling over on its back a soft light rain… tiptoes across flower tops.

the stars twinkle a lullaby and that rabbit inside the moon snuggles and snorezzz

shushhhh sets all worries out to sea as we drift away in a blanket filled with sweet fulfilling dreams
