Mind takes flight.



Sitting in silence whilst the whole world sleeps

Letting out feelings, like a record on repeat

Wondering about the future and what that will be

Looking through the window at the reflection which is me


Climbing up a mountain by a babbling brook

Bending picking daisies stopping to take a look

The world which is beneath me stretching far and wide

Looking for the answers knowing I can’t hide


Reaching for a rainbow, catching stars instead

The sun and moon so near me spinning around my head

When I see the daybreak I return to my bed

Safe in the knowledge that my spirit has been fed.

  1. I hope you could just sleep whenever you can, Elaine!
    One person in my poetry class said she fell asleep in class. I said you must have no trouble going to sleep. She said she fell asleep during the day because she couldn’t sleep at night. Whenever you feel sleepy, just go to sleep, doesn’t matter what time it is. The good thing about retirement, to me, is that I don’t have to follow a schedule as long as I get things done when I’m awake and have the energy to do it. I find that the worry that I have when waking up in the middle of the night keeps me more awake. So when I do wake up, I just tell myself that it’s okay and see if I could go back to sleep. My house is big and cold at night, so I can’t get up and walk in the cold.

    1. Itโ€™s my mind that stops me from sleeping some nights. I have been given something to help me relax but my brain overcomes it ๐Ÿ™„ Iโ€™m sure it will settle down again. Like you say I am free to sleep when I need to. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Last night I had my headphone on and I fell asleep with the music. I then work up and took off the headphone, but I’m glad that I went back to sleep. My new med is working. In a sense, it’s good that your mind is active, but not overworks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

              1. I’m back, Elaine. I had an interesting class this afternoon. Well, I started having high blood pressure during the custody battle years.
                My anxiety – it could be caused by tinnitus, the non-stop stimulation in my brain. I try to ignore it but it’s bothersome at night.
                I take medications for both conditions. I take the minimum dosage, so I still have to exercise to keep the blood pressure down and take herbs, drink herb tea and listen to music for the anxiety.
