It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

Except it’s the first Tuesday of the month which means

Poet’s Choice of Words – Shattered & Rejuvenating

This one is dedicated to me this week… so tired after looking after an ill child, multiple training courses, noisy animals, and a lot of broken sleep…

Bed, Sleep, Girl, White, Tired, Pillow

Can't wait
To lie down
And close my eyes
Head hitting pillow
Drifting into slumber
Hoping for a solid sleep
With no nasty interruptions
No cat mewling at me for his food
No children with raging temperatures
No husband needing my attention
Just me, snuggled up in my bed
Oblivious to the world
Refreshing my body
My mind and my soul
Ready to face
The world

    Oh, boy… do I remember those days! This was so beautifully written, Sis. I felt your need and want all the way to Arizona. I hope it gets better. ❤

    I think every woman would love that kind of sleep, right? I know I would! 🙂
    There are days when I crave it 🙂
