When Sleep Eludes Me

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 23
For today’s prompt, take the phrase “When (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem. 

When sleep eludes me, and I’m lying there,
songs play in my head, faces flash near
by like cameos that I must let go
of when pink light of morning appears.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
