A Sleepless Night Triolet

From Shakespeare’s Hamlet: "To sleep, perchance to dream-ay, there's the rub.” Perchance to dream. . . Ah yes, but first to sleep! My little clock keeps ticking on and on. I‘m long past even trying to count sheep. Perchance to dream. . . Ah, yes, but first to sleep! A creeping dread now makes me want to weep. Dawn’s coming; birds are trilling as I yawn. Perchance to dream? Ah yes. . . But first to sleep! My little clock keeps ticking on and on.

    Yes, I was awake at four AM , with headache. I sometimes get terrible migraines. Rose is a poem I wrote when I was bored ;} Your poem lingers with thoughts of Shakespeare ;}

    Excellent in all aspects! So many that I should not bore anyone with them. Rhyme and Rhythm are the most prominent, I believe. Therefore, to the faves!

    You have not only given a quote from Shakespeare but given a brilliant touch close to that of Shakespeare. Another Gem from your pen my friend with a good news that for all those who suffers from insomnia that some of the steps of Yaga which I am going to place here would be highly beneficial for them. I am placing the next step today and thank Andrea for your kind and lovely words. Love and best wishes....Ravindra

    To wake without a blink of sleep. Is sheer madness that can make you weep. How do the God's expect production. When all their workers cant even function. I see I borrowed your rhyme weep with sleep. Oh well, I knew I heard it somewhere. :) Now go and get yourself a good nights rest.
