I Slept Last Night

Not a usual occurrence not because of melatonin

I didn’t take any not because I listened to my favorite podcast

Sleep With Me I haven’t been listening to podcasts at night

not because I did anything in particular such as

avoid gluten or sugar yesterday I ate a very good desert

at an Italian restaurant called Osteria 106 banana torte

not because I skipped my latte in the morning or had an especially

calm day or because I avoided alcohol Nina and I even had

a drink at lunch to celebrate her visit and Hamid our waiter

gave me a special Big Wine Glass because it was a beautiful day  .

Not because I went to the gym I did not or swim I didn’t do that either

or played an active game of anything my friend Fran plays pickle ball

and I’ve always wanted to write that in a poem not because I did

anything in particular but it was one of those nights and they are

very rare one of those mysterious nights where I got into bed

with a book and thought I wonder if I

will sleep tonight and somehow I just did.

 

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
