Shh, Speak Shrouded Sounds Slower

Shh, surrender silent sorrows. Subconsciously slip into stillness, sedately surrounded in serenity's song. Slumber satisfied, slithering softly between silky soap scented sanitized sheets. Soak up summaries of summers spent splashing at seashores, sandles sifting through salt scented sand, as sapphire skies shine splendidly. Scores of silver seagulls soar stunningly above saltwater seaweed scenery. Suddenly snorkeling with seahorses, you somehow become the studied subject. Swimming in submarine schools, scarcely secluded, you become someone's significant someone. Spryly spinning synchronously side by side someone special, sprinkled in sentimentality, speaking shrouded sounds, you shift seamlessly into sound sleep. "Speak some sense slower," some seahorse shrieks. Sensibly speak shrouded sounds slower, softer, so she can sleep sometime soon. 2/9/2020

Thanks, Sandra. I was in a surrealist state when I wrote this. I'm sure you'd do a beautiful job if you gave it a try. Happy Valentine's Day. XOXO

This is excellent alliteration, you must have included almost every word beginning with S..

Thanks, Silent One. I was sleepy a few days ago and started seeing the letter "s" everywhere.
