the kind that keeps you
unawake but unasleep?
When crystal thoughts clinking
against others meld
into pure, simple clarity
of nothing but solutions
for your life, for all?
to discover simplicity within complexity.
Then you drift
first to sleep then to reality
with it's big knuckle banging your head,
commanding you to forget the foolishness
of what was just a fuzzy dream.
"Focus on real problems!"
Sadly, you do, the next time you lay
unable to sleep or be fully awake,
though that feeling you felt
from transparency of clear thoughts,
still feels real and lingers.
