Me sunday scribblings #221 life swap

Fasten me with a safety pin

to the bed while I sleep

so that I may not drift too far

When I walk tie a rope round

my waist so that I don’t get lost

Search for me when I am missing

Remember me when I am gone

Look up in the sky and read the stars

As they spell out my name


  1. We go to some strange places when we sleep. Nice one.

  2. thats nice... i particulalrly liked the beginning

  3. great post..tie a rope around me to keep me down to earth so that I may improve who I am and not chase stars

  4. Thanks Anthony we do indeed!

  5. A lovely poem. As writers we do tend want to drift away all the time. But are pinned down by the the day to day tasks :)

  6. Pamela, This is beautiful. I saw the first line when I hit your blog this morning to read your POW piece. It caught me with its safety pin. :) I've been blocked a bit, and didn't do this prompt--almost missed this!

    This piece would look amazing on a cross stitch, illustrated and all. It's one of my favorites.

  7. Thanks Brenda!That is nice of you to say!
