Our Friend Morpheus

Poem By Grant Howard Bunce

Sleep has arrived, morpheus is calling, pulling me away,
too many worries crowd my mind and force me to stay.

Eventually he takes my hand, powerless i go in silence,
i cant resist, i unclench my fist, all without any violence.

He soothes my mind with dreams, so vivid and realistic,
A master of deception, sometimes the dreams are twisted.

morpheus, like drops of purple ink in a glass of water,
swirling mysteriously, unconsciously he caught her.

Now she sleeps so very still, barley she makes a sound,
did Morpheus go beyond his work taking her underground?

But comes the dawn chorus, as soft sun beams stray,
followed by a yawn and stretching, chasing Morpheus away.

Morpheus silently leaves just the same as he entered,
he releases his victims gently and their exit is not prevented.

We all need Morpheus, he has come for me now,
i cant keep my eyes open, so i'll finish up now.

Man judges man, tells him his poem is not very good.
Says it disappoints him, look at me I'm really good!

Who Is Man Really?

Ebbing tides remove the footprints we leave in our lives.

Lapping waters rearranging the sand ready for the next players to enter.

Happy Apples

Apples sit up in the apple trees, bumping together in the breeze,
Rosie cheeks in the warm suns light, huddled together on a cold dark night.

Singing songs when no one can hear with the blackbirds or a passing deer.

The Moon And It's Spoon.

The moon drags the sea about,
and makes the tides come in and out.
The man up there in the moon,
stirs up the sea with a long spoon.

Bitter Sweet Love

I breathe a heavy sigh lost in my thoughts of you, I look out the window ignoring birds who bill and coo.
I forget to breathe nothing else matters when I'm thinking of you.

This madness that i live every day, you're so close I could almost touch you.
