On a Sleepless Night

On a Sleepless Night

on a sleepless night
it is time to pause
why was i restless?
what was the cause?

infomercials delete
in the brain they compete
sanctify the edges
compassionate hedges

peace only peace
quiet and stillness
the very words calm
a soothing mind balm

somewhere there’s a tug
it has disturbed this whole night
what it represents
is a mysterious blight

stillness and quiet
and a question that’s asked
for help in the clearing
who’s up for the task?

present so present
the night will unfold
and a gift will be waiting
when it’s ready to be told
