The Unmade Bed

Inspired by a photograph at


An unmade bed
And it says many things.
'Make me, you lazy thing!'
'Come on, love, hop back in!'
'Do you remember that holiday at Lake Lugano?'
'When did you last wash these sheets?'
'Gosh! You were restless last night!'
You really should buy a new doona cover!'
'Why do you always leave me till last?
'Stop remembering!'
And what do you say?

'Shut up!'

Not only a bed but a green policy here:

Haha! Love it! I really must start making my bed. My unmade bed never says anything directly to me but I hate to imagine what it says about me after I leave the room!

LOL ... I love this poem inspired by the unmade bed photo. Both are nifty and resonate with me ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I could think of a few more things an unmade bed might say. LOL But your list works great.
