I have been told by many people that you should always keep a journal, notebook, or diary by your bed so you can log your dreams, thoughts, or in my case poems. I woke up and had to scramble for a pen and some paper. I had a crazy idea and needed to get it down in writing. I managed to salvage the essence of what the dream was, but some of the dream blurred. I had to fill in the blanks. Sort of like Madlibs. Does anyone remember those? Well, I was jotting things down for my to-do list, and fell asleep with the notebook next to me. I woke up agian with another idea, but the damn pen was missing. By the time I got myself together I lost most of the words that I saw in my head. Now I get to fill in the blanks. I'll share the final outcome after I manage my to-do list. In other words, don't hold your breath. I'll get to it eventually. Hmmm. Where did I put the list?


Keep a journal by your bed,
because the thoughts within your head
will burst while you're asleep,and then
you'll pop awake, and find instead
of writing that you seek your pen.
