The bell rings for the end of school.
I head home, stuff down a biscuit
jump on my bike and ride to funmaker park.
Teatime, wonderful food aromas.
In the kitchen, ravenous family rhinos
share their daytime adventures.
Sunset’s fiery glow slowly sinks
into the distance. Citrus orange sun,
pinkly gleaming, relaxes with me
as I slip into bed. I slide on my silky pyjamas
and creep into the cool dream-seeker.
Before I go to sleep, I enter
a fairytale land where knights,
tall and grand, rescue people.
The moon shimmers its pearly glow
in through my window. Burrowing
into my bedclothes, I wait for night,
drifting and dozing as I travel into dreamland.
