Briefly Interrupted by Sleep


Briefly Interrupted by Sleep


This is not a turning point,

a parking place or reversing bay ..

It is nothing, but a brief red light stop

at the end, of yet another, very busy day ..

    Oh but are we allowed to U-turn here? I often wonder.

    • Neville

      If U turn here, at least U had the decency to leave something behind .. and who knows, there may well be those who follow .. cheers

      • arqios

        Oh I see! Who knows?! Indeed!

        I swear your titles are amazing!! "This is not a turning point, a parking place or reversing bay"-- sleep really does feel like ONE SECOND sometimes. And then, back to the grind it is!! We got this though!! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        • Neville

          there's something about the grind I find so compelling .. but we got this though so thanks a bundle LIZ πŸ’œ

            Yes - is your work part of life, or is your life part of work? as one said somewhere. Might have been me said it originally - who knows. Doh!
            You staggered back in amazement at the wit of that saying? 😁

            • Neville

              indeed, I am bent dubble & backwards ..

              • orchidee

                Yep, it's educational on 'ere!

              • Pop64

                Sleep, the intermission between our various acts. I really like the way you identify its brief but required action as it is part of our lives. Well done!

                • Neville

                  My grateful thanks are winging their way in your direction .. but just in case they need a break mid way and are late arriving, I'm gonna leave an extra one here for you .. thanks

                  A traffic light of artful intent. We squeeze a moment here, a moment there, simply for the gratification of continuing on the journey of poetic expression. Sometimes we pause long enough to pen a few lines of truthfulness. - Phil A.

                  • Neville

                    Cheers Phil I knew I could count on you sir .. Neville

                    Blessed sleep, do we ever get enough of it in our world today? Quantity and quality up for grabs. Wishing you peaceful sleep whenever you can grab it. Good write dear friend!

                    • Neville

                      thank you .. night night and sleep tight Bella

                      β€œThe best bridge
                      between despair and hope
                      is a good night's sleep.”
                      well, too fckn bad
                      so many of us, are
