Sleepless in Redding

Last night I called for sleep.

I shouted, whispered, pleaded and it remained….


I wondered why it wouldn’t come.

I read.

I watched a Turner Classic Movie.

I stared at Twitter.

I checked Facebook .

I willed to dream.

I chased thoughts down steep, winding paths only to become lost in a piney forest.

I swam in murky doziness.

I conversed with Moose and Max. The dogs.

I prayed.

I greeted Saturday, August 1st with a groan.

Perhaps, a cup of strong tea….a potion of promise.

A Band-Aid for today.
