Thank you to everyone who linked up to Prose For Thought last week. I am so pleased to see so many creative people in one place.
Its Day 11 of National Poetry Writing Month – or NaPoWriMo. You’d think by now I would be ‘all poemd out’! But, in fact, all it is doing is inspiring me more!!
This last week hasn’t been easy. Not only have we sold the house and been looking to relocate, therefore looking for houses in new areas, but my car has now been in the garage for two weeks – I am investigating cheaper ways to get it fixed after the quote I received would be the equivalent of buying a small house! Of course, during this time, I have been unable to teach. When I have things on my mind, I find it hard to sleep. This poem sums it up I think!
Lack of Sleep
Tossing, turning, things on my mind
Peaceful slumber I can’t seem to find
Too much going on in my brain
Lack of sleep, driving me insane
I did everything to prepare for this
I read my book, had a goodnight kiss
I listened to a relaxing CD
So why must this sleep now elude me?
The more I can’t, frustrated I get
Tomorrow I’ll be knackered I bet
This doesn’t help Vic, just chill out
Relax, think good thoughts, that will help
