Sleeping in

I have friends who refer to God as "The Universe."  My beloved and I, whenever something fortuitous happens, like being given the gift of an extra morning of sleep, we say we are "fans of the Universe."  Somehow this feels less blasphemous.  Somehow.

The week spreads out
Before me.
It is a week
Of early mornings.
Already I think about
How I might pare it down,
Add extra morning sleep           
I prioritize.
My daughter’s doctor
Calls in sick
This means the appointment
I rescheduled to Wednesday morning 8 AM.
Can move back
To this afternoon.
It is clear the Universe
Wants me to sleep in
On Wednesday.
I am a big fan
Of the Universe.
