A Bedtime Treasure This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


An unnoticedaccumulation of dead tree slices that lie among numerous other compilations inan
antique, redwood bookshelf
Chimerical imagination of a grown childcaptured in the crisp, fossil-like golden pages
Protecting the child'sfantasy, a formerly deep crimson red cover, is now a creamed-coffeebeige,
lovingly torn around the edges
Tiny hands grasped the nighttimestory
Eager child with intense eyes rested gently as the soothing voicesdanced through the air into a
mystical universe
Unsealed, her young,capricious mind exposed a honey-eating bear, a saturnine donkey, a
bashfulbaby pig and an energetic tiger-like character
Created a world of whimsicaldreams as the captivated youth meandered into a deep sleep
