starfish

they sleep splayed out like starfish.
dreams lapping up and washing over,
their breath rolling in and out like the tides.

And smelling like the sea

I was going to type "deep sigh..." and then read Lindsey's comment and don't want to seem like a copycat ;)
But this makes me comfy. If that makes sense.
Beautiful.

Oh yeah.

There's a Sara Groves song that I love called "Starfish" Not sure if it's on YouTube but it's about her babies, and I think you may just love it too :)

Their eyelashes brushing against my cheek, because I could not stop watching. I could not move away.
(Oh, wait, do starfish have eyelashes?)
