Premium Member Count your blessings, fellow insomniacs
How easily we nod off at dawn
                       ~ though we can't a wink sleep all night...

Premium Member Summer Rain

Sky seems heavy today
Up on the hills the clouds gather
Musical chimes begin to sing 
My garden could use a soaking!
Enormous drops begin to fall

Rhythm of the rain of the roof
Air begins to freshen
Impulse to walk in the rain, but I
Nod off in the porch swing

You are an oxymoron
Always wanting more
Looking for the score
Wanting the reward
They will not be ignored

OxyContin is addictive
That's why it is restricted
Your problem's self inflicted
Get some help, get committed

Everything you owned you pawned
All you do is nod off and yawn
Then pace until the floor is gone
What an Oxy-moron

After the Melt
i see your body in fractions
the image of a soft thigh
the imminent regress back into privacy
i sense you climbing off the bed
and moving into the bathroom
with the grace of a thousand moons
shining down on me and soothing my ails
whatever ails may be left to exhume
i nod off to sleep slowly and silently
in the warmth of comfort your life exudes

i am yours to elude...

With retirement approaching, my career in rearview
One question keeps begging, “Just what will you do?”
What will it look like; a day with no cares?
Will I sit by the window, nod off or stare?

Or is there yet passion to conquer new quests
To learn a new language or welcome some guests
Or new roads to travel with vast sights to see
The choices are endless, so “What will it be?”

Premium Member My Muse is a Fair-Weather Friend
When the temperature soars
   My Muse is cranky and cross
Whether in or out of doors
   Meter and rhyme are quite lost

My head heavy, I'm bored
   Sweat pours off my chin
Hunched over the keyboard
   What a funk I am in

To slumber I yield
   I nod off for a bit
My fate surely sealed
   Poetry, I quit...

Yet switch on the a/c
   And, voile! A new me!
To the delight of my Muse --
   Cool air lights her fuse!...

no tick nor tock
Watching silent hands 
Changing time in the darkness 
No tick nor tock just number changes
Illumining the shadows  

A small window of time
My eyes become heavy and weary 
I nod off for what feels a life time 
And the clock says NO 

Day light creeps upon the darkness 
Birds start the morning ritual
Night into day 
Where did the hours go

Watching silent hands 
No tick nor tock 
A new day has begun 
I guess I better get on
