Ozark Mountain Homegrown


Sweet Slumber


The moon
How it beckons
In the stillness of the night

As nocturnal creatures serenade you
You bask in the beauty of the moonlight

Sending you off
In sweet slumber
And starry dreams

    How beautiful and coincidental!
    Just before signing off, I came across this beautiful piece the imagery of which is a reality to me.

    All sleep and dream may render the mind fuzzy.
    You are too good to waste the time.
    Write. Short, sweet and deeply looking for a certain reality.

    Keep writing.
