TO SLEEP

TO SLEEP

.

 

 

Fading light and falling book

descending  delta depths.

 

Reflections fall in gentle flow

on alpha’s lulling swell.

 

Active in society

on high upon a beta crest.

    A fine write and pic M. Yes, the two buildings on either side are played down well, with the lighter tones. I think.
    Doh! I gotta study a bit of Greek now, before I know what sleep patterns I'm having. Can one dream in Greek?! You asleep now, and can't reply yet?

      Up to my eyes in yoghurt - why is there a red line under yoghurt - have they run out of Hs in America - have you got any to spare Orchi?

      • orchidee

        Yes, I got the H's. Have you got the U's? e.g. color/colour.

        You are the artist we like to see each morning! Enjoyed.

          Ah thanks Kat - must get my pen out as I am short of works to post at the moment.

          Michael,

          Love the painting! The pastel colors are very pleasing to the eye!
          I believe you posted this one with another poem. If I remember correctly, I think there’s a second painting you posted about the same subject!

          As far as sleeping patterns, I’m glad I don’t have any issues with that...yet!
          I love how you weaved the words DELTA, ALPHA, BETA into your poem!

          ~Laura~

            Thanks Laura - you've got me wondering - must check to see if I've posted it before - you may well be right - the customer has just received the paintings back from the framers and they look good.

            • Laura

              That’s awesome!

              Lovely!
              and the painting beautiful.
              Blessings!
              I'm nocturnal but once I hit the bed
              I spend lots of time in delta waves!
              :)

                I'm the same in delta waves from the time I fall asleep until I wake - I wake in the same position and the only thing that ever disturbs me (although not that often) is the call of nature.

                  :)

                  Very good write Michael. I can fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow.
                  The discussion about the painting is interesting as I believe this one or one very similar has been posted before, or was that one of a pub. No matter it is always good to see your art.

                    Actually I'd forgotten I had already posted it until Laura reminded me - it is called getting old. Thanks Andy.
