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.

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.
