28 December – Hibernation exploration

Deep into the twelve days of Christmas,
but before New Year starts to beckon,
is the best time to try hibernation,
at least that is what I reckon.
When we’ve posted and given and shared,
and the feasting is feasted and done,
there’s just about time to curl tightly up
before life demands to be re-begun.
This is the time to imagine you’re a creature
such as a hedgehog or dormouse
snuggling down for continuous naps
inside a comfy, cosy house.
There’ll be plenty of time to explore the wild
during twelve months of fast coming year,
so just for now, let’s ignore all that wow,
and stay sleeping and snoozing right here.
