That Pull

That pull in my belly drawing me toward something….

It wakes me at night from my dreaming.

It startles my thinking, like a groan down deep.

And keeps me from my sleeping.

It steals the peace from my mind.

It’s plaintive crying unceasing.

I set the kettle and steep the tea.

It will take some time for it to release me.

  1. This reminds me of times when I get a burst of creativity and everything stops so I can pour those thoughts out lest I forget them. The pull gets stronger if I ignore it too long… Yes, the mind is amazing ☺🌷

  2. Good or bad pull? Sometimes, like A said, my brain has too many ideas rattling around in there to shut off. Other times, anxiety and disquieting thoughts keep me awake… If you have to lose sleep at all, I hope it’s the former! 😦

    • I don’t know that it is good or bad right now….it is an energy, an anticipation. It moves me and makes me want to be still to understand it better. It’s like I’m being watched, if that makes sense. You want to move, and you want to know who is watching you.
      Thanks. Your comment made me think about it in a new way. 😊
