Still insomnia visits leaving me with only dreams of sleep.

A Mermaid In A Starry Sky

In the middle of her mind,
In the middle of the night,
She escaped from her body
Leaving all adversity behind.
She floated amongst the angels.
She felt the wind of their wings
Humming a gentle love song
That only nightengales sing.
She tumbled along a star path
Catching a comet's tail
Riding it to a dreamscape
Along a meteor trail.
Falling into a time warp,
Streaking across the sky,
Diving like a swan into
The dipper's eye.
She swam in the milky way,
A mermaid in a starry sky
Twirling, swirling, cream and honey
Without wings she could fly.
On and on she went
Without a single care
Magical, whimsical dreamland
In peaceful slumber she's there.

some say that highly artistic and intelligent people suffer from insomnia, I think you qualify for both

Swimming in the stars! What a wonderful image. The mood, the setting, the imagery is awe inspiring and the things dreams are made of. Sheer delight!

It has often seemed to be the case, that your best poetry comes out of your most sleepless nights... Not that they should be recommended, (I mean sleepless nights,) but for poets they are a positive challenge...

If I had so many lovely images in my waking hours, I would not worry about sleeping. A first class read.
