Waking moments...of Isabel Cecilia
by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
Sleep has evaded me again...almost like a naughty child teasing me unrelentingly...
It was fun to stay in active consciousness, but when your body tells you differently.
Then the moment's gaiety dessipates.
Reading, writing, singing, staring, knitting and sewing were the armor I deployed...
But the land of dreamland's door remained unmoved, latched and beyond my reach.
How do you unwished beautiful waking hours you've had not so long ago?
When every minute that had passed awashed you with so much joy far above your dreams?
So here I shall remain eyes alighted with vivid sight of life and things...
Unblinking, not complaining, never tiring but marveling and thankful of the gift I was blessed with.
