yawning on WoW ...

     Words for Wednesday is a moveable feast of participants. Each month the prompts ~ words, pictures, themes, or even phrases are provided by someone new. The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind. This month the words will be provided by River on her Drifting Through Life blog.

Weighted blankets help me to sleep.
Oh, wait, that's Charlie! Sneaking up without a peep!

Who is that striding across my back?
Lucy Magillicutty, who thinks I'm a soft nap sack!

I stretch, I twist, I mutter hocus-pocus,
No wonder my morning eyes are so hard to focus!

Sluggishly I make my morning brew,
one heaping scoop, nope, better make it two.

What's this I see in my email box?  A comparative study on sleep that is lost?
I don't need to know more than I already do, into the trash bin it's tossed!

I pull out my prayer notebook and jot down a line,
oh please, Lord, tonight let me sleep just fine!

I love all the fur-kids into my home I did bring,
but at times with my sleep, they're ruining everything!


  1. Smiling.
    Jazz sleeps most of every day. How I wish he would let me sleep.

  2. Wow! This is great and I know exactly how that feels. I have only one cat, but she takes up the spot where I like to lie as soon as I roll over even a smidge and then of course I'm stuck on the edge for the rest of the night. I think about getting a bigger bed, (if only I had room) but she would still cuddle up right next to me and take my warm spot if I wriggle out of it.


Thanks for stopping by and catching my words!
