Insomnia

Love & Sleep
11" x 14" mixed media on canvas panel

Her soul aches sometimes
from a sleepless night's misery
as seconds spin into
small eternities
bound in moments
without time

So she navigates the mire
with a melancholy desperation
to awaken
the Sleeping Buddha
before the Self
is lulled into
nihilism
by the gloom.
