Bedful of Dreams~by Paul F. Lenzi



Bedful of Dreams

"Unmade Bed" Painting by Eugene Delacroix From

“Unmade Bed”
Painting by Eugene Delacroix

mattress memory

soaked with the stories

unconsciously seeped

from the sleep of the mind

so much insight of midnight

forgotten by daylight

naught left but to rebreathe

that bedful of dreams

every night and again

until something of substance

some germ of a thought

clings to consciousness

disregards dawn

and comes into its own

a vague fragment of verse

words awake put to paper

awaiting a muse none too picky

who knows how to

take an ambiguous start

to a sensible finish

what poets I wonder

put sleep to such use


  1. thank you for sharing my poem with your readers

  2. I’ll agree, Ron. It is hard to remember what you said/did yesterday
