Third Thursday Poetry - Vera Pavlova

A Remedy for Insomnia
Not sheep coming down the hills,
not cracks on the ceiling—
count the ones you loved,
the former tenants of dreams
who would keep you awake,
once meant the world to you,
rocked you in their arms,
those who loved you . . .
You will fall asleep, by dawn, in tears.

                                                                ---Vera Pavlova

Tonight marks the 3rd annversary of Poetry at the Grounds, the monthly open mic reading founded and co-hosted by me and Sarah Long.  "There Will Be Cake " is our anniversary slogan. There will also be door prizes and frivolity and poetry.  Life is good. Poetry makes it better.
