REFRIGERATOR WHIMSY
awakened...
a glass of water this night
from the fridge

a thirst
from dreams in slumber lands
with lemonade seas

the paper boats
never sink in frothy waves
below

but those ice monsters
can chew through a village of
refrigerators

A lot of thoughts can go through a person's head when they wake up thirsty in the night. I like the idea of lemonade seas, but fear those ice monsters. (Smiles.)

Trips to the refrigerator during the night can be full of surprises, some better than others.

Refrigerator keeps my coffee cold
with a helping of vanilla
and a sweep of whip cream
