any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
Lovely and serene . . . shushing the world around you down. Perhaps those having sleep issues should read your poem before retiring for the evening, Sumana. The words, are very conducive, I think, for sweet dreams.
I really love this poem, Sumana. At times in my life I need to follow the advice given. If only one could keep those unwanted thoughts away.....and not panicking is definitely key. But, ha, right now I am going to bed with a magazine to read. I hope it does not detract from sleep.
I love your poem, Sumana! I do have sleeping issues but usually in the middle of the night. Maybe I should still follow your advice and avoid any screen before I sleep. I will now grab a new book and see if sleep comes!
ahah, what a sweet sound sleep we all will have then!!
I am about to do this in exactly this order! Great advice! But I always read in bed, a lifetime habit, cant break it!
Close the bookSwitch off the lightGreat ending, Sumana! That is a sane thing to do. One gets to concentrate but is forced to give way to sleepiness.Hank
Lovely read! Enjoyed reading this! :)
A perfect end to perfect days.
Nice one.well written.But for me sleep is my best buddy.just a thought to take rest and then you can see me sleeping in the next 5 minutes..
Great advice, lovely.
peaceful reminders of rest...
I am going to try this. Sounds very promising.
Ha I am writing this in bed and it is 3 AM.
Sumana,Superb advice for the kind of sleep I usually crave!! A true gift to oneself, if your advice is accepted...Eileen
Well done! This 'how to' is applicable to everyone of us, isn't it. Really good one. :)
it is the switching off the world that often gets me...i dunno why my thoughts run rampant when i put my head down...slept wonderfull yesterday though.....
Now I have learned how to sleep, greatDear Weaver
Now, perhaps it is the hour I'm reading this, perhaps it is the words, or perhaps a bit of both...but I am certainly being lulled into a comfortable, sleepy mode right now! Nice gentle words to ease one into dreams!
Switching off the laptop is important!I find that tough & hence sacrifice my sleep :)
Excellent way to end the day and to begin next with positivity. I often follow the rule switching off from world hours before sleep. Loved your take :)
We take it for granted that we lie down and go to sleep... So many people suffer from terrible insomnia. Good advice!
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
