WICKED INSOMNIA

The shades are drawn

It’s dark behind

The windows in my mind

There’s nothing I can do, no more,

It happens all the time

****************

Seeking for the light that’s gone

Alone here in this dark

Searching, but not finding, no,

The smallest of a spark

*****************

Storms, they never whisper

As my demons take their place

Boldly taking jabs at me

It’s reflected on my face

*****************

Maybe there is solace

If I could only get some sleep

It’s hard to see

Through crying eyes

A soul to take or keep

FLANNIGAN

Flanagan was a lady’s man

At least that’s what he thought

Many a time he found himself

With his hand where it should naught

Sophia saw it straight away

With a plan to stop the gaucherie

Flanagan fell for it hook and line

‘Twas the end of his debauchery

E is for Esoteric… #AtoZChallenge

Some will bite onto the lead-line while others toss a portion of the net over their shoulder. Some of the net is kept in one hand while a greater portion is held in the other, and then, the hands slide along that portion of it to bring the hands closer together. In this, one is then ready to rock the net backwards in an arch and then quickly forward with a twisting spiral motion, thus causing the net to spin open to its maximum diameter before hitting the water and sinking. I speak of this esoterically, of course!

THE OLD MAN…#NaPoWriMo2019 Day 4

I once questioned a frail, old man

What made him think he was right?

He looked at me with a twinkle in his eyes

And said, “Well, sleep on it tonight.”

I pondered his words and then my own

What was it he thought would come?

When morning arrived, I conceded the point

For in his words I found wisdom.
