🌌Sleepy Ducks – Insomnia Poem

Insomnia Sucks
I can’t count the ducks
They say to count sheep
It don’t put me to sleep

Imagery is great
But it keeps me up late

Now it’s 6:30
The dishes are dirty
I know I should wash them
But I want to squash them

If this made you smile
Then it was worthwhile

And I know that you know
And you know that I’m so
And that sounded brainless
The sheep are now nameless
My mind is so aimless

Too tired to write stanzas
About what a woman and man does

This poem gets worse
With Each Passing Verse

Or maybe it’s clever
In some profound way
It might change your life
Or just make you say…

“You should go to sleep
You’re brain is not deep
You’re just overtired
And think you’re inspired
But thank you for trying
Your poem I’ll keep”

So now it is time
To count the damn sheep
And if I am able
I’ll fall fast asleep

And while I am sleeping
I’ll dream I’m awake
And when I am waking
I’ll wish I could sleep

The whole silly thing
It just goes round and round
But now I have you
And you know what I mean
When I say…

That I paint the sheep
Red, blue and green🎨
Cause I can’t count them nightly
And sleep so politely

Quote Day for Three Days Challenge “It is better to Have Loved and Lost…”

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”   Alfred Lord Tennyson

aww so sweet …

This is my second day of the quote challenge. I am to choose a quote and write a post about it. I have chosen the above quote and here is my offering…

It is better to have loved and lost,  than never to have loved at all

It is better to have stabbed your fork into your eye, than never have owned utensils

It is better to have had your leg chewed off by a cougar, than never to have owned a pet at all

It is better to have fallen off of the mountain, than never to have climbed at all

It is better to have lived in a mansion and then become homeless, than never to have lived indoors at all

It is better to be run over by a car, than to never have walked at all

It is better to have shoved your hand into the garbage disposal and had it chopped into little bits, than to never have had a garbage disposal  at all

It is better to have climbed up to your roof and fallen off,  than never to have owned a house at all
