Next to the Shore 

Listen to the surf 

The wave’s eternal motion 

Lulling me to sleep 


Awake Too Early

My relentless mind 

In perpetual motion 

Sleeping’s a challenge 

Awake against my will

Dreaming of dreaming 

Longing for slumber 

The machinery of my mind 

Psychological cogs churn and spin 

Whirring hum of my soul
