Tick tock tick tock
One last word and this story is done.
I watch as the minutes get closer and closer to the time of sleep.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I lead the children in a prayer.
I pray the Lord my Soul to keep.
Stop that I say! kicking your sister is not allowed. Feet are for walking and not for kicking.
If I should die before I wake Get on your pillow and say your prayers.
no no no this is not the time to be flipping through books!
Clasp your hands and close your eyes. didn’t you hear me say?
I pray the Lord my Soul to take. Who’s jumping on the bed.
God Bless Daddy, Mummy and you too.
Kisses and hugs and water for some.
With a toss and a turn, eyes heavy with sleep close down tight
And at 8pm on the dot our house is now filled with sweet little cherubs all rosy and round lost in the land of dreams
Now it is time for the adults to play.
Well considering I am drawing a blank with my NANOWRIMO project I thought I would join in on this weeks Write on the Edge Red Writing Hood prompt. Strange trying to keep the word count down for this . This week we were asked to take them to our version of 8:00 -AM or PM, fiction or creative nonfiction- in 200 words or less.
