All those thoughts rushing round my head,
Stopping me sleeping snug in my bed,
Just as I turn and switch off the light,
Another bright idea lights up my night.
So I reach for my pen and notebook to side,
For when words come tumbling;
I just cannot sleep or hide.
I scribble and think and let the words flow out,
Inspiration comes knocking at night, shhh don’t shout.
Silently I write on until dawn cracks the day,
All ideas now caught, noted, and put away.
Now it is nearly light and I so need to sleep!
This writer’s heads heavy on soft pillow deep.
Dream time to let all those thoughts in my head
Start to gather once more snug in my bed.
