When You Sleep



                                          When the day is over
                                          Lights are turned off
                                          Silence of the night
                                             No birds singing
                                   The moon lights up big and yellow


                                           Your eyes are closed
                                           Dark long eyelashes
                                      A hint of smile on your lips
                                Your long brown curls on your pillow
                                              Your body rests
                                      Breathing quiet and relaxing
                                 You are so beautiful when you sleep


                                    Use my senses....listen and feel
                                       Peace and quiet of this night
                                           Like a shining jewel
                                              Love and beauty
                                          for people and nature

    One can feel the stillness of the night when you describe it. Yes, that is when everything is at rest. It is beautiful. Replenishing, putting back what was taken. Awesome, Anne-Lise. Have a happy May 1st too. Summer is almost here. Yeyy!

    I enjoyed reading your poem... You ask about my troll poems... They are meant to be big, funny, silly, bumbling creatures that mean well but just don't think like we do. Poor misunderstood souls. Have a good week end.
