A rispetto. The ideas don't feel fully formed in this poem to me, but I'm a bit drowsy so perhaps that accounts for it...


Waking Thoughts

I toss and turn and try to sleep
as visions creep into my mind.
This play or stage is set to keep
a waking dream with twists to find.

Each turn I take canít give me peace
but only causes a caprice:
My mood as flighty as the breeze
when sleep cannot arrive with ease.

Lady Courtaire
I like this poem, and I'm fascinated by your use of the word "caprice." I almost feel as though you could elaborate upon the scene with a few more rispetti? (I'm assuming that's the plural...)
