Sunday Afternoon

Everything that needs doing is done
for now.
What might come rests
in stronger hands.
There is just enough light through the blinds
to trick a dream.
Just enough dark in my eyes
to succor sleep.

For Karin's prompt at Real Toads

Sharp and witty, but also there is something very poignant and real. The Succor/sucker is such a wonderful wordplay here and the whole thing is a kind of trick that is also not at all a trick. Thanks so much for participating. k .

"I've done what I can, now it's time to rest". To trick a dream is a fascinating phrase. Wonderful as always.

I love the Sunday afternoon nap with its tricks and succor and promise of God's hands.

One of your brain-snapshot poems, and as always, they say whatever the reader sees, as much as the subject or the blood and sweat of the ink you put in them--its probably not good to trick a dream, but I've had some I wish I could have.

Nothing beats a Sunday afternoon nap.

Ah, to trick a dream, to succor sleep....such perfect things to do on a Sunday afternoon. This had such a perfect feel to it for the title. You always amaze me with how much you can say in so few words.
