Question: Do you have time for a short poem before retiring!?
by C!.S!. Scotkin

Fatigue tiptoes
quietly unseen
spins spider silk
binds arms, legs, mind
leaves no way out!.
I dissolve into dreams…

Aside from one word, this is so good, as witnessed by the many that you have inspired!. And since it is 2:20am, I might as well give it a try!.

The body aches for rest,
The brain seeks oblivion!.
Yet the mind denies the quest,
Fearful dreams keep living on!.
Mindless games of solitaire,
A monumental waste of time,
Yet it helps me to prepare
And safer than a glass of wine
Sudoku also helps me slumber
So far from feeling is the number!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

You've said it all, my dear, I had a bunch of beautiful stuff float'n 'round in my head a minute ago!.!.!.Fatigue has robbed me of all rational thought!.

in my bathtub;
Wet bubbles
