Ignore the bells as they chime so loud
Try to sleep through the thunder sounds
Imagine walking upon a peaceful shore
The lightning – the howls – you must ignore
Mimic peace, let out a sigh
Ignore the heavy blood red sky
Stay calm, relax, breathe in deep
Even as the thick mist creeps
Send a signal to your very soul
That pines for rest through every toll
Be a stack of pebbles through crashing waves
Limber for dancing between the graves

    1. Sorry about that, Icewolf… you were obviously excluded.
      Mind you, I can sleep through anything.

    There may be distractions along the way but one must always be wary not to be caught in a jam!
