Mornings.

Morning dew,
When the sleep is dew
A clear path, you drew
Taste of the early tongue
Sour brew.

sleep may come tonight
even with your constant fear
of never waking

Leda and the Swan

God-like swan, soft as silence, deep in a haze… Leda fell asleep on a pond bench; waking up, she saw webbed feet, pure white feathers and wings amid misty dawn.

Unsolicited

Take the clock.
Take the wall it hangs on
& anything else you please.
You can have
ALL my time;
just leave the bed
& let me sleep
while you use it.

insomnia

Tiredness pulls at us
Scratching our eyes and taunting
With promises of dreams
Yet sleep eludes us still.

Awake

Causing me pain,
While you sleep,
You don’t even know,
How awake I am.
