dusk arising




There I was dozing
counting sheep
67, 68, 69


this sheep looks
me straight in the
eye and says


"Haven't I seen you
someplace before?"


  • Fay Slimm.

    Ha - try counting backwards next time my friend -- am right now being taken to dance in the dark with that wonderful sax and oh how I adore it.

    • dusk arising

      The sax is from my fav music era and genre, 50's mainstream jazz. Yes, I would start counting backwards tonite but i think a couple of them have wandered off. They're so ureliable that pair, they can't be counted on.

      Ha - love it - we are but two who write with a sense of fun and long may we continue to do so.

        As they say in Africa (weekdays) .. at the end of a rainbow is a croc-o-dile. Remember the sabbath and keep it in your trousers. Every (i)cloud has a sil-icone chip. Absence makes the heart grow fondle her. The pen is mightier than the ... swore! Love makes the waist grow round.

        Just in case you dont do another batch tomorrow.

                  Did that sheep wake you up? Did you have to start counting over again?

                    You just didn't want to count me did you, I was number 71.

                    You know that you have absolutely hit the spot with the music today. The 50s cool mainstream jazz is at the top of my long list of jazz I like.

                    Haha excellent reminded me of...

                    One day I was counting clouds to put myself to sleep
                    The clouds had eyes and ears and legs my god! I'm counting sheep!

                    Love this one DA "when sleep turns to dreams" are we asleep? oh so many questions
