“Counting Sheep” by Anna Keibler


ANOTHER SLEEPLESS NIGHT


As day meets night
at the end of the day
I find myself once more
unable to find my way
to that place where dreams
could settle my mind
where moonbeams
and twinkling stars
could light up the sky.


Instead I’m lost within
that old familiar place,
on the outside
and yearning to be
within that space
where tranquil dreams
and calm reside,
where rolling meadows
go on for miles
and puffy white clouds
float up so high.


And I stand once more
outside the door,
no key in sight —
another sleepless night.

    Thanks so much, Jean! Glad to share this fascinating artwork with this. I don’t tend to have as many sleepless nights these days as I used to but every so often my eyes are as wide open as that in the middle of the night. :love: :love: :love:
