Hello and Happy Poetry Friday! Last week I found out that I won the giveaway on Carol Varsalona’s blog for In the Middle of the Night: Poems from a Wide-Awake House by Laura Purdie Salas and Angela Matteson. It arrived in the mail a few days ago and it is fantastic! Thank you, Carol, for the giveaway, and thank you Laura and Angela for such a wonderful book.
It is really fun to think about what everything does when you’re fast asleep. Of course, my mind goes to the creepy ideas: evil dolls, maniacal shredders, DIY slime that tries to take over the house, etc. But I decided to write a short poem that is more in line with the sweetness of Laura’s poems in the book.

What a sweet picture of your little ones and Laura’s book Your poem fits the theme perfectly!
I love the picture of your two little ones reading. I have a snow globe that once belonged to my mother. My grandchildren love to press the button and bring snow flurries to the silver world inside it.
Love the photo of your little sloths enjoying Laura’s book. I also love that you chose a snowglobe for your object to write about. “Midnight snow angels”- such a sweet line.
What a sweet pic! Your poem is perfect for inspiring sweet dreams at bedtime.
