Go ahead, laugh--it's not all that funny when you're the one tossing and turning!

I waken in the

dark of night --

my sleep d i s t u r b e d once more --

and doggedly


'till SzLzUzMzBzEzR be restored.

F r e t f u l  thoughts  

of the day's events

BARRAGE  my   wearied  mind;
        toss           turn
I            and 
with eyes held tight

till darkness
d i s s i p a t e s  and l i g h t

comes seeping through the blind.

Hi Connie, I totally agree with you that there are times when sleepless nights aren't so bad after all. I usually take it as a chance to meditate or pray. In the quiet of the night through the gentleness of the stealing dawn, it is the best time to tell Him the stories of your heart. Meaningful write. Thank you for sharing.

Best wishes,

Cool write. This sounds like my every Sunday night so I'm no Monday morning quarterback. Patrick

Connie--this was adorable albeit a sleepless subject. I hate most waking up two hours before I have to get up for work and not getting back to sleep. Try meditation or prayer--that often lulls one back to sleep--love the way you used the type fonts!

Dear Shee, I'm sure you meant well, but no thank you, I do not want to sleep because of any spell. My Bible tells me that God gives His beloved sleep, and all kidding aside, I love the times when I get up at night--it seems I can hear my Father's voice more clearly in the quiet of the night. I usually read something in the Bible, talk with Him, and often write a new poem or a letter or card. It's a great time for me! Although I may be tired the next day, He gives me enough pep to do what I need to do.
Lotsa love,

Colorful and very creative poetry Connie. Definately "not boring" as the kids would say. Delightful and expressive!

Not Sleepy? Try Chia tea with milk.
