Falling Asleep with Pen in Hand

by Bruce W Niedt

Sleep and inspiration battle
on a level paper playing field:

The mind works, groggily,
pushes the hand to catch

its thoughts, unraveling
as night advances….

Mind snaps back, awake;
eye regards hand’s work

in the moment when sleep
almost won the day –

a single vertical line
stopped in its progress

downward.
