Writings and Witterings

Around Four


lorries trundle past,
someone in the bathroom,
get up, close windows,
taste breath, drink water,
clean teeth, take para,
lights out, settle down,
get up, make tea,
moth fluttering in lamp,
drink tea, hear lorries,
write this, settle down,
damn, awake now.

  1. Haha. That was great.


  2. Once you’re up it’s tough to get back down. At least you got some writing done. πŸ™‚

  3. Have you been watching me when I sleep (or don’t sleep)?
    Although since school started and we’ve had a much earlier start time this year, I sleep like a log…


  4. Ah, sleepless nights. I remember them well. Fortunately last night was not one of them. It was a fun poem only to those who had a good nights sleep! πŸ˜‰ x


  5. Hope tonight brings you rest, Polly. x

  6. You forgot the tossing and the turning and the thinking that hours must have passed just lying there but when you check the clock mere minutes have gone by.


  7. Oh dear! I have to actually get up at 5 at least one day a week to go down to City–my whole schedule gets a bit crazy. Thanks for the smile. k.


  8. This made me chuckle….
