Contradiction

(Some of these short poems see Creation as if through a child’s eyes. Some of them suggest a more mature view of the Creator. A few of them even reflect the long perspective of age. Most are not intended to be Scriptural, sometimes not even spiritual. Yet they may give your spirits a lift: By the middle of the week, who doesn’t need a chuckle or a changed outlook?)
 
CONTRADICTION
 
I’m never quite ready to jump into bed.
There’s always just one chapter more to be read,
a victory to claim
in a video game,
and dozens of thoughts that still dart through my head.
 
   I’m never quite ready to jump out of bed.
That pillow seems just the right spot for my head.
Now, why is it so
that I don’t want to go,
yet once there, I want to stay put in my  bed?
