#11 NaPoWriMo, Before I Sleep…

Hello my lovely friends. Today’s challenge is to write about an object/place and then end the poem with a more abstract line. I’m not so sure I did that… but this is what I wrote with that as my prompt. Enjoy!

Before I Sleep

I’m laying on a cloud.
Cuddled up in soft cotton.
The music of night is quite loud.
I’m surrounded by books and words run,
Run, run home, where they’re bound together.
Where it’s all been written in the letter,
On my face, in my bed,
The book rests on my head.
Before I drift off to sleep,
I wonder if that word was too deep…
All is lost and silent.

I hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Keep smiling, you are one day closer to Friday awesome sauce!!!

“Good night,
May you fall asleep in the arms of a dream
So beautiful, you’ll cry when you awake.”

Finding Inspiration.

We all feel uninspired and unmotivated at times. What can we do to feel motivated and inspired again???


1. Read.

Reading gives us an enlarged world view and provides an escape from whatever is killing our creativity. Stories capture feelings and memories that inspire growth.


2. Exercise.

Working out helps refresh our bodies, clear our brains and give us energy. It’s a great way to start the day!!!


3. Music.

Music allows us to express our emotions and is an escape from reality. Music is art for the soul.

4. Photograph.

Looking at pictures evokes memorizes, feelings and gives visual ideas. Pictures are worth more than a thousand words!!!



Simple words can bring hope and encouragement. We’re not the only ones who’ve felt this way.

6. Write.

Writing out all of the ideas, dreams, feelings and thoughts that are clouding our minds helps us to put clarity in our lives. The best therapist in the world is a blank piece of paper!!!

7. Goals.

We all have dreams and things we wish to do in our life time, goals are just a rough map of how we are trying to get there. Setting goals makes us face that this isn’t the end, there is something more worth living for.

8. Charity.

Charity is seeing others needs are greater than our own and doing something about it. Loving and caring for others is the most inspiring thing!!!


I hope you’re all feeling more inspired now! I know I am. Please leave a comment letting me know what inspires you, I look forward to hearing from all of you.

Until we meet again
