dreams, like bones, break hard
so I sleep with eyes open
awake, I can blink


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    A nice bit of Haiku. I can see you staring white-eyed and sleep-blind at the ceiling. At lot from a few words. Good.

    sleeping with open eyes…that’s so tough.. always alert because of fear what awaits us in our dreams.. i had bad dreams as a kid.. nowadays i dream seldom and sometimes really weird things…not scary though…more funny..smiles
