I have a few books going on right now but this evening I felt like reading poetry. So I went over to my poetry section and pulled out The Poem I Turn To. I’ve read through this collection several times and each time one or two poems spark my interest more than the others. I guess just like the books I choose, it’s all about what kind of mood I’m in. Do I want something more thoughtful, more classic, more fun?
This is the poem I especially liked tonight. It’s so short but I like thinking about what it could mean. Is it sleep calling, dreams that await, your subconscious, the future, a ghost?
All Night I Could Not Sleep by Li Yi
All night I could not sleep
because of the moonlight on my bed.
I kept on hearing a voice calling:
Out of Nowhere, Nothing answered “yes.”
Anyway, now it’s time for me to go to bed and hopefully the moonlight won’t keep me awake. Sweet dreams.
