As My Stomach Growls

Updated on November 15, 2017

Why Can't I Sleep ?

I hardly ever can't sleep

I had a good day yesterday

Now with the day over

I was already for bed or so I thought

After two hours I began to toss and turn

I didn't feel hungry

Earlier in the day I had eaten some bologna

My wife said it was six days old

It smelled and tasted good

So I wondered if it could of been that

As a rule as soon as my head hits the pillow

I am la la land

So many people have sleeping problems

I am lucky I never have to count sheep

I love sleep

If it was an occupation

I would sign on the dotted line tomorrow

I am here

Ready to sleep day or night

Give me a pillow and I am a happy camper

Now that I couldn't sleep

I decided to go on HubPages

I read about angels in a very inspiring hub

That took me to this current moment

My stomach still a little wishy washy

I ate a pear

The green pear was not only juicy but incredibly delicious

I can still hear my stomach growl

My thoughts are relaxed and peaceful

I don't have any pressing issues on my mind

I average five to six hours a night

The weathers been chilly

I worked out in the yard today

So I should be tired

As I do a process of elimination in my head

One by one

I check off what it could be

Maybe an angel wanted me to read about angels

I have always believed in angels

I have never seen one that I know of

I feel that they continue to do God's work

Angel, angel it even sounds so calming

I think it even has a ring

No one in my family or friends have ever talked much about angels

So what better time than now

I always like to think up ideas

That is my creative side kicking in

I think wouldn't it be something if they made a play about angels

They can go right to the point

No beating around the bush

Cut right to the chase and call it

Angels Are Everywhere

It is a story about angels who meet at a coffee shop

They talk about their day

Who they have helped and who wouldn't listen

After each angel talks and tells their own funny story

All the angels get ready to leave

See you next week

One angel says to another

You bought this week

My turn to buy the coffee next time

They all smile and go on their way

The same waitress waits on them every week

She doesn't know they are angels

She does say they are good tippers though

She says she feels funny when they leave

I am glowing all over

I can't explain why ?

Another waitress says

Are you sure you didn't put something extra in your coffee ?

Don't be silly

You know I don't even drink coffee

      Peggy Woods I even forgot I wrote this. I have to get back to the original idea. So many things happen in one day. As we move on to the next the day before gets easily washed away like when we wash our face with a face cloth. Soon we are clean again. We start with a clean slate.(lol) I do remember those dirty faces I have had over the years. All that playing outside in the grass with friends. I love reading peoples comments more than I love writing each poem, I takes me to a different place. I can not yet describe. I get to travel in their mind for a brief second and see the world through their eyes. My poem has brought us together and now I have a new connection in life. I can go in great detail but I don't want you to think I lost my mind. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I am back to wonderful sleep. Last night my head hit the pillow and after that there was not even a peep out of me for the rest of the night. i hope you sleep well too. Today is in the 60's and how hot is it in Texas? I just came back from Nashville Tennessee it was so much fun. First time and so much to see and so little time. Have a great day.

      billybuc A lot of people love fish or a good steak. I am happy with a nice grilled hot dog with all the fixings or a bologna and cheese sandwich is just fine. Today is nice and sunny here in Maine. I am out in the yard picking up those leaves before the snow comes. Exercise and good old fresh air. Maybe a little writing later who knows ? Thank you for reading and sharing. Don't forget to get up and exercise and take a walk with Beverly. All writing and no fun makes billybuc a dull boy. Only joking your writings are never boring. I just want to emphasize stay healthy and exercise is a great way so you can be around for many years to come. Kind of selfish on my part I love and enjoy all your tips. Have a superb day.

      Fun read my friend. Loved the reference to bologna, one of my guilty pleasures.

      I know there must of been a reason for my disturbance. I got up today feeling a lot better. My wife told me our neighbors mother passed away last night. I believe if your close to people on earth you can connect on many levels. We are all blessed with the ability to love and that love doesn't have to any conditions. It is good and always caring. Especially in difficult times. Thank you for being the first to read and comment. I appreciate all your support. Have a great day.

      Yes Bro.

      Angels are everywhere and you have one or two at home, no? Chuckle.

      Many will envy your ability to sleep. Lack of it is sometimes due to an overactive mind for one reason or another, which we sometimes forget. Eating late, chronic fatigue and a host of other reasons can cause it.

      Six days old, eh? Well, unless you have great freezing capacity at home, I would not leave this kind of food that long. Finally, exercise or more of it if you do, can sometimes home.

      Your blog flowed well and was easy and interesting to read.
