From the leaves drifts down slumber

Prone in the summer heat
Birds singing
Insects humming
Mind wandering
Body softening
And from the leaves overhead drifts down slumber

Sleep takes you

Sleep takes you

Sleep takes you and whirls you around,
Swirling you along over the ground.
Then the ground looms and you veer away, desperately climbing up towards day.
Head over heels you tumble and fall,
Speeding down like a plane caught in a stall.
Loud ringing sounds out and you wake with a start,
Lying in bed with a hammering heart.

Sleep takes you

I’ve been ill with fever for the past 5 days, and this poem came back to mind…..All those fever dreams—the worst one was repetitively trying to fill in an online invoice!

 

Sleep takes you and whirls you around,
Swirling you along over the ground.
Then the ground looms and you veer away, desperately climbing up towards day.
Head over heels you tumble and fall,
Speeding down like a plane caught in a stall.
Loud ringing sounds out and you wake with a start,
Lying in bed with a hammering heart.
