As I lie awake in bed
Tiny bubbles fill my head.
A fizzing frenzy of swirling thought
Dispelling anwers I once sought...
 
My eyes, alive with scattered spark,
By themselves illuminate the dark.
A kaleidoscope vision of gold and blue
Place dancing fantasies in my view.
 
Heart pounding hard in my chest
While all my body seeks is rest.
I inhale slowly the blessings to come
And gently exhale the day that’s done.
 
Memories floating through the night
Like a firefly fluttering just out of sight.
My ears, still ringing as it may seem,
Catch quiet whispers of a champagne dream...

(2013)

The main idea for this piece came to me late one night while lying wide-awake in bed. I get some of my best ideas while lying in bed unable to sleep. It's as if the chaotic thoughts of the day quiet down just enough for me to hear the deeper internal thoughts. Often times I'll get a sudden jolt of inspiration and have to get up and turn the laptop on. For me, sleepless nights are actually pretty good...

I'm delighted and humbled by your review, Julia... This is probably the third poem I had ever written. Indeed, the verses for this one flowed from me like water from an open spicket, almost as if the words were channeled from someplace else rather than contemplated in my head... I've never told anyone that last bit of info for fear they wouldn't understand... I s'pose there's a first time for everything. 8^)
