    A good night's sleep
    At peace
    One with your pillow
    All the worries of the world, cease

    I know that the cessation is temporary
    Your problems don't instantly go away
    But catching some calming zees, quiets
    the madness and injects some ease into the fray

    The billowed sheets become
    a cool breeze against your skin
    Your settled breathing, a soothing lullaby
    a cluttered mind can relax and snuggle in

    And the dreams that accompany that peace
    I tend not to remember after such slumbering bliss
    I'd imagine, under my feet, sapphire oceans and pecan beaches
    Above, a golden speckled orb, each cotton ball, a feathery kiss

    To rest this way every night
    A bounty that I can't always reap
    But I tell you, there's nothing quite like
    a good night's sleep

    ZZZZzzzzz...

    :sleep:I love catching some ZZZZzzz...s

    How true it does inject some calm.

    I notice when I travel
    The beds are always this soft
    I settle like this when I am on the road
    It must be quality of the beds they sell to Inn's,
    Bed and Breakfast and Hotels.

    No matter where I am sleeping I dream in vivid flair
    I recall some of the details
    I could swear I was there

    They are dangerous
    Some are sensuous and Seductive
    Some are funny in fact
    If I don't like what is about to happen
    I know in my dream
    All I have to do is awake

    "There's nothing quite like
    a good night's sleep"
    :sleepy:

    Sounds like a pillow of heaven to me, ...like putting all your worries and cares on the nightstand for that journey (secretly hoping they would blow away) .

    Hodee...
    Some of my dreams
    mimic my reality
    Some point to the future
    like some sort of prophesy
    But I find that my most
    refreshing night's rest of all
    occurs when those night time
    images I fail to recall
    No, there's nothing like
    a good night's sleep

    I enjoyed your flowback Brotha Hodee, thank you.
    Yes, if they could all just blow away, that would be wonderful, but alas. Thank you queent, much appreciated sis.
    Geez, I wish you could enjoy each and every night in deep slumber Rich. Thank you for your support on this.

    This poem really spoke to me underneath the skin because sleeping is somewhat a kind of therapy for me. When I get sad and down, I go to sleep because that's the only time you dont have to THINK about so much. I'm learning how to put my trouble entirely in God's hands so I can be just as peaceful when I'm awake. I appreciate you putting this into words, beautiful words.

    more PILLOWS PLEASE!

    you couldn't have done a better job on this

    a beautiful write about something that people don't usually spend alot of time on

    until you find that you are lacking sleep

    you are so right there's nothing like a good nights sleep

    Thank you for such a kind response Phenomenon. Yes when we're asleep we don't have to actively think of those troubles, and God does help grant us that peace during our waking hours.
    You can never have too many pillows. Being groggy all the time, puts such an extra weight upon us. Thank you So'ja, your kind words tell me that you can relate.

    This was truely delightful.:)
    Unfortunately a good nights sleep
    is something I rarely get (its 3am and Im wide awake
    alarm goes off at 5am for work)
    This is the case most nights for me.
    So I can truely appreciated a good night of Zzzzzzzzzzzz.
    When I am lucky enough to get one.
    Thanks for reminding me of what its like:)



    Much Luv
