Sleep like a log

Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

Sleep like a log 
like a part of a tree 
tender and calm 
steady and settled on a patch of green grass
resting without a helpless sigh 
and winds waking us 
winds of the mind stirring us from sleep 
gazing Beyond our duvet 

sleep like a log 
like that part of a tree 
resting in a wise wonderful way 
with a duvet comfortably comforting our minds from the day gone by 
an oak like steady rest 
steady with duvet cushioning us 
as if like green grass 
on log like sides 
comforting us whilst we rest 

a mind might be singing a more refreshing wake up song 
when our eyes wake to greet the day 
and the log like manner 
that we once were in the night time 
may now be like a breezy busy bird 
running around on trees 
a flower resting on a chair 
thinking and wandering at the world 
a squirrel so busy catching acorns 
being a busy bee instead of 
a restful log that we once were in the night

sleep like a log 
sleep like a tree 
resting for the night 
without the wind unsettling your leaf like mind 
then wake up and be like a flower resting on a chair 
wandering at the world 
or like a busy bee at work 
unable to sit and rest for even ten minutes 
reflect and pause

    Great one - it inslpires me:

    Still as a pank inside a trunk
    he slept like a log completely drunk.

    An inspiring write dear Rose - - to sleep like a log is healing to body and mind. Loved the way you liken it to all things natural.

    Ah such a blissful peace your poem brings. Oh that i could find rest in this way... for my nights are torn with screams and fear if you are to believe my poem posted today LOL ... which is of course just fantasy.
    Lovely poetry Yellowrose.
