Alone

Day 26 of Napowrimo

 

That lance of light that slid across the dark

I watch as it swiftly disappeared

That cloak of darkness shrouds the light

Time ticks as I wait for it to depart

That blanket of quietness masking every sound

I listen for a sign I am not alone

That cloud of stillness resonating around me

I feel its coldness on my skin

That weight of heaviness as I fall asleep

I am unaware of time slipping by

That shard of light that peeps through the curtains

I am still alone, in the tranquility of morning.

Childhood morning

Morning has started

I listen from my bed

Birds chirping loudly

The electricity wakes

The shipping forecast

Talks from the bathroom

The kettle whistles

The shower hums

Familiar voices drift upwards

The clock strikes,

with 7 cuckoo chirps

the washing machine whirs

its on a top speed

and in just a moment

A voice will shout

Are you up yet?

As if you could sleep

through the electricity din

Of the house waking up

Once again.

Inspiration lacking

inspiration

ideas not flowing

brain is resting

tiredness has joined me

desperate for sleep.

Looking for solutions

where do they hide

searching for a question

answers lost deep inside

the sun would help

warm rays comforting

yet dark clouds cover

and coldness surrounds.

I search for the answers

they are deep in my soul

inspiration is coming

inner voice opens up

relaxation and sleep

creativity returns

My faithful Dog

I wonder what your thinking

your eyebrows raise often

you blink when the sun hits your face

you lie still, one ear cocked up

The sun falls on your black fur

There is an auburn tint I’ve not seen before

you snore gently

your body rises with each breath

you look like your chasing rabbits

one eye opens just to check im still here

I wonder what you see

I wonder what you dream

I wonder what your thinking

You look happy and serene

my very faithful friend.

 

4am

It’s 4 am again

no moonlight

stagnant warm air

dark as the ace of spaces

foxes screaching

owls hooting

the clock ticks loudly

my heart thunders in my head

my mind wanders

everything seems deafining

every worry is enormous

every ache is intensified.

I am so tired

I just want sleep

will I ever drift off

or will I have to meditate

4 am is not a good time

to be awake

Holybobs

It’s finally here

I waited a year

my case is packed

I’ve checked it twice

I’m panicking wildly

have I forgotten anything

I’ve my toothpaste and bikini

what more do I need

The sun will shine brightly

the sky will be blue

Drink lots of wine

Sleep all night

Enjoy the scenery

and relax for a week

where am I going

you ask and I say

I’m off on my holybobs

Hip hip horrah
