Can I Say?

Christine can’t sleep and resorts to poetry

A World Apart

I woke when I thought

The night was done.

Looked at the clock

It was only one.

What pulled me away?

What woke me up

What caused my thoughts

To stir the cup?

Can I say, perhaps

A brilliant thought?


Alas, I cannot.

Simply stated

And for naught

The blogging fact

Is I forgot.

My day to blog

Though I am tired,

I got it in

Under the wire.

So, from North of 43

I once again

Go off to sleep

And to you send

  1. This poem makes sense to me. Similar interruptions of sleep I am sure do happen to a lot of people from time to time.

  2. Thanks for the comment Uta. On rare occasions when it happens to me I find a cup of hot tea and a chapter of my book soon sends me back to sleep.
