You Need To Get Some Sleep

Updated on June 8, 2014

I Know I Have To Get Up Early Tomorrow

What a busy day

Sometimes it's hard to separate one day from the next

A good day at that

Things went smooth and no problems

Peoples attitudes were positive and upbeat

The weather was warm and sunny and in the 80's

I walked for about an hour today

Everywhere I went I could smell the fresh scent of lilacs to pine

What a great feeling to be alive and well

There is no time like the present to notice

How wonderful our world is

We can take pictures of

People busy cutting their grass and planting flowers

Families walking together and joking

Playing with our pet and all the funny situations

A moon lit night

Learning as we go

Taking the bull by the horns

We can do better than that

Be a raging bull

Powerful and strong

Waiting for precisely the right moment

To spring back into action

      When I lie down at night, I am usually saying (out loud), "oh, I love my bed. Oh - wow-oh - this is so good!" If overheard, people might wonder what kind of orgy is going on in there! haha.

      Gypsy Rose Lee So much to take in during one single day. If we don't realize it then it slips away. I have a lounge chair out on the back deck where I can sleep the day away.Nellieanna Sleep just the sound of the word makes me want to crawl under a blanket and take a nap next to my cat. Most people argue all day with their negative thoughts. I wrestle with sleep. Sometimes I push myself too far then my body crashes. Other times sleep wins out and I am gently persuaded to close my eyes and nod off to such a wonderful place called bed.When I am there I can think of no better place to be. As if my world only exists behind my dark eyelids . Many times I can't resist my hidden passion for the art of sleep.Michael-Milec I find sleep truly amazing how it restores my body and fuels my soul. Thank you all for your great thoughts and comments. I appreciate everyone finding the time to read my (stoems) stories/poems.

      Interesting and close to personal activities.

      Oh Michael, providing our bodies by restful sleep cakes back to our soul's and spirit's greater effectiveness. Mine body is so earthly- lately when gets overworked and tired the brain requires extra time to adjust into proper condition.

      Up and interesting

      I love to sleep and can sleep easily, too - anytime or anywhere; although sometimes getting myself to stop doing what I'm doing and lie down keeps me from my sleep. But if I lie down, I'm out like a light. But my bod knows what it needs so that if it's deprived of sleep, it will claim some whether or not I lie down! haha -Know what I mean?

      I've no trouble getting up and on with my day, though. Ever since I was little, while I liked to sleep, I sort of hated using so much time on it, when there are so many interesting things to do when awake.

      Anyway, sleep is necessary for health and longevity and I'm into both of those, so . . . :-)

      Yes -- all so true! And sleep is really not optional, though at times we treat it as though it were a viable option. haha. I'm on a personal campaign to adjust mine to better scheduling & application.

      I love this poem. Each scene you describe is warming and uplifting!
