Another Sleepless Night

Another Sleepless Night


Sometimes on the verge of change

Planning, thinking, wishing away

The precious hours

I should be sleeping


Rolling around the details

In my mind’s eye

Words that struck a chord

Still resonating loudly



Am I the conductor

or the orchestra?

Maybe I’m the choir

Alternating between all three


Eenie, meenie, minie, moe


At times like you I’m exorcising demons

Mostly I’m stating the obvious

Celebrating the ordinary

To raise your Awareness


Eenie, meenie, miney,moe


Some call me a love muse

Inspiring love

And spreading joy

My favorite gig


Eenie, meenie, miney, moe.


Occasionally I’m interrupted

By my mind’s eye

Struggling to see the clue I may have missed

Often reflecting on one of life’s mysteries


Words sometimes keep me awake

Struggling to move me to the keyboard

Give us our voice

Let us be heard


Sometimes I resist

Lay on my back

Follow the breath

And return to sleep


Other times

The poem is mightier than I

I turn on the light

The words escape to the keyboard


Some of my most honest work

Is written in the late night

Or early morning hours

When I don’t resist


Bravely removing

Shields of wariness

Sense and sensibilities

I let you all in


Watching my words take me

On the adventure of a lifetime

Already exceeding my expectations

Of where I want to go


Had I waited for sunlight

Would I have been so honest

To still share with you what

I just did


Would I like to take it back

Doesn’t really matter, It’s indelible now

(Dear Reader, sometimes yes, sometimes no)

The conductor enthusiastically spins her prose
