National Poetry Writing Month- Day 15

Sleeping In 

You are warm like snowball cookies
left on the counter to cool
unlike fresh from the over hot
you won't cause powdered sugar to melt

instead of an indistinct glaze
the powder retains its shape
most of it sticking to cookies
some dusting off surfaces

I am the powdered sugar
aligning my body towards warmth
shifting closer gently with a light pressure
drifting off to your side
