Sleepless Nights

troubled edge of dreams
a voice clearly cries my name
the voice of a child…

    Lovely thoughts Tim can be seen in different ways, maybe its your voice, crying out like a child for all to be as it was....Seren

    Mysteriously intriguing. Just a repeat from the comments below..a very interesting senryu that really pulls on the reader. Or at least me...always, Laura

    Very nice Senryu. A bad dream?

  1. Date: 7/1/2013 2:07:00 PM
    I hope, not a nightmare? There is a sense of mystery here......your own voice ?

    I bet it is an actual child right there by the side of your bed asking to sleep by you because of his own bad dream. Nice senryu.
