OctPoWriMo - Day 2

Prompt Words:

child's mind
what waits in the darkness
fantasy world
what is real

Today's poem is inspired by my typical night's sleep with the wildlife in our neighborhood, if it isn't the donkeys or the coyote it is the owls or the quail or the crows or the neighbors cannabis smoke...

The Cycle of Sleep
I hear the crickets one two infinity
I drift off to ...
so loud the donkey braying

Damn you donkey

I hear the breeze smoothly flowing
I drift off to ...
so loud the coyote is yapping

Damn you too, you loud mouth pack ...

I hear the engine hum of the early morning commuters 
I drift off to ...
so loud the alarm clock sings, WAKE UP!

I've been up, damn you.
