Sleep Deprivation

Night creeps over the city
But it brings no relief
Not even a sip of chamomile
Makes me want to sleep.

The darkness supposed to soothe
Only closes my mind from sleep
With sleepless thoughts that
Only make me want to weep.

Lack of rest is dangerous
It creates an uncertainty within
And it provides no feelings of safety
That produce feelings of insecurity.

Morning Tea

Morning Tea

Hot and sweet
Memories of winter
Fall into place
As each sip burns
With a lemon tinge
And a ginger burst.
With some honey
And sugar
And a twist of real
Lemon juice
It becomes a ritual
That every morning
Hot or cold
I do or otherwise
I cannot function
And become a listless
Spirit in the creative world
But with one sip I awaken
Into a whole different being
So long to grumpiness
Hello to a brand new day
To write and dream away.

Summer Heat

Summer Heat

Melting into the days and night
Stillness, humid, causing a boiling sensation
Bubbling into the veins that produce the sweat
That reveals the discomfort of the summer heat.

Sunshine sizzles the outdoors without relief
The clouds roll by and never stay to cool us off
But they like to mock us with their brief shade
Disappearing when we think we’ve gained coolness.

With summer days the time goes by fast
But the heat makes time stand still
Despite the fact that summer moves on
And does not stop whether it’s cool or hot.

Summer heat, it rises and barely falls
With a cold sip from water or sitting in shaded trees
The summer heat always prevails no matter where
You go and no matter what you do to relieve it.

Well if that is the case I usually nap
Or curl up with a good book or annoy my cat
But I try to enjoy the summer despite the heat
But man, some of those does just can’t be beat.
