a car horn blares in the distance
a truck rumbles by
wind dances in the tree tops
voices drift over from across the street
strains of music
noises in the night won’t let me sleep
a fire engine zooms by, lights flashing, sirens screaming
then comes the chorus of dogs
I can’t sleep.
feet pound on the street
a basketball dribbling
I think I lot of people write poems similar to this, but I couldn’t sleep last night and I never write poetry, so… these are just the noises I heard last night! 😉
Oh noooo I hate that feeling when you can’t sleep 🙁 maybe next time you can try tea (I read somewhere it probably helps??)
I knowwww. 😆 Maybe so… thanks for the tip, Starling! 😁

I was actually still up when u posted this the other night, wish I’d read it then it’s such a cool idea to listen to everything that’s keeping you awake and make it dreamy ❤ I’ve been having up the trouble falling asleep and I think I’ll try this. Keep up the writing!
Glad you read it now! 🤗 Let me know how it goes! 😉 Thanks for commenting, Anna.
This was such a neat poem!! I hate not being able to fall asleep. 😝🙈💤
