Bed's Afloppin...

pillows tossed
Can't find sleep,
She must be lost.

Nose is stuffed
Can't clear my head
There's no sleepin'
In this bed.

If there's no schedule,
I sleep like a log
but when a schedule looms
I'm up all night like a 'coon huntin' dog!

Question:
Do you have your poetry and prose collected, other than on your blog?

I love "reading you" and the thoughts, smiles and tears that go along the ride.

I have had trouble sleeping for as long as I can remember, and my wife is one of those disgusting people who are fast asleep as soon as they close their eyes. In fact, I am fairly sure that I have caught her sleeping with her eyes open a few times while I was giving her some advise on how to make me happier.

Ah, you are so right. If I know I have things that must be done the next day I fret about them all night! Hate that!
I hope you get some rest and that you are healthy.
