Day Nine of Thirty-One: Not My Rhythm

I used to sleep and dream

but now the sleep's a stream

that flows along my day

while my eyes remain awake.

I used to sleep and dream

and now I lay awake

thinking of the things

for granted I won't take.

It's been a long week. I have to say I am really looking forward to Friday. After having conferences this week, being out of my classroom for three days (sick kid and then a math training), and trying to keep up with other responsibilities I'd be lying if I said it's all going great. I am in need of a nap that lasts several hours. I'm not talking about a power nap. We are way beyond that. We are talking several uninterrupted hours of sleep. I am hoping that nap pays me a visit this weekend but until then, this is not my rhythm.


  1. I love the title you chose for this slice! Sleep is vital and I know I'm a bear when I don't get enough. Here's hoping you are able to sleep until your body is no longer tired this weekend!

  2. I hope you get long uninterrupted hours of sleep! I have conferences next week - going to be exhausting. I'll be in the same boat, wishing for sleep!

  3. Ooooh, that sounds lovely. A long, deep sleep nap. I hope you get that this weekend!

  4. I like your use of rhythm and beat. Good luck finding some sleep!

  5. We are way beyond that...

    Lol, I could just hear you saying that. Get some sleep, friend. Find your rhythm.

  6. Tough weeks. I like how you said that...Not my rhythm.
