Opening My Eyes

Updated on December 31, 2015

Can Be So Difficult

When I go to sleep

I am out of it

I sleep so comfortable and relaxed

I forget who and where I am

As if I am returning from a far away land

My mind is clear and my thoughts are fresh

Thinking starts all over again

Just like a car

When the engine is turned on

It has to warm up

Then a little while later the wheels start turning

Off I go to enjoy my day

What I accomplish it is to soon to tell

Where I end up

Nobody knows

Wishing you a day that makes you happy

Maybe with friends or family

Even a quiet day by yourself is always nice

Good health and all the energy of five men

The weather is sunny

Our first snowfall came two days ago

About four inches of wet snow

Now it covers the ground

All glistening and white

What a beautiful sight

      Gypsy Rose Lee Latvia is so different and so interesting. I can imagine with the weather so cold lots of snuggling. It sound great to me. Nature and all it's beauty. What wild animals do you have ? What do people do for entertainment ? If you could take pictures of all the different sights. It is a place so far away. A world of it's own. I can't wait to see all your writings for 2016. Wishing a basket full of love and happiness for the whole family. So each day you can reach into the basket and pull out something so special that makes you laugh. Every day something different. Plenty to last you all through the year. What a wonderful start. Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate all your time and energy in every post.

      Here in Latvia we arrived in the New Year with freezing temps and plenty of snow. It has all made me so cold and tired. Wishing you and yours a Happy, healthy, progressive and successful New Year!

      MsDora I love sleep. I also take cat naps when I have free time. I use to think what if ? When we sleep that is our real life and when we are awake that is a dream. So all these years we have been dreaming. Now I am going back to sleep to enjoy the wonderful world of love,passion, kindness that never stops. Where we can solve any problem and we all live to our hearts desires. Thank you for reading and commenting. I keep trying to uncover the man under the skin. Most of the time I hit a lot of bones and fatty tissue. So it might take awhile. I dream for a better world and that we all live to see it.

      Hopefully, you are enjoying the snow and also getting adequate rest at night. Thanks for the lovely lines.

      Missy Smith I am almost certain I can sleep standing up. I have fallen asleep fifth row in a concert. When I'm tired nothing can keep me awake. I wish I could be more like you up and ready to write all hours of the night. Thank you for reading and may all your dreams come true. Pleasant dreams.

      You write many nice thoughts here. I must say I'm envious of your sleep habits though; I don't sleep that sound at all. Lol. Happy New Year's Day to you. I hope 2016 continues as peaceful as your poem. :)
