Sleepless



Amidst the veil of darkness,
Time slowly ticking by,
Street dogs barking,
Trees swaying, intoxicated,
The stars glowing,
in the night sky,
Somewhere i hear,
a baby crying,
A car passing by,
The dim lit appealing,
vacant courtyard,
The soft humming breeze,
shivering my flesh,
tempting me,
to close my eyes,
under the tender warmth
of my soft blanket,
but still sleepless, i lay
with eager dreams ornamented,
upon the edge of my eyelids,
with random vivid thoughts,
encompassing my mind,
embracing my pillow,
i am waiting, sighing,
for sleep to dawn,
upon my exhausted being,
putting an end,
to the infinite explorations,
draping the silent racing forms,
locking the door,
of my blazing eyes,
if only for a while...

Dear Lisa,
Good Morning!
When sleep is away,
Listen to soft music,
Take a magazine for light reading,
Rearrage the stuff of bedroom......
Think of your blessings,
Cherish the most beautiful smile,
Believ,sleep is all yours!
But now,wake up!it's a beautiful rainy morning!
Wishing you a lovely day ahead,
Sasneham,
Anu
