No Sleep - Poem by Philip Vincent Sanders

My mind refuses sleep
Portraying life in all its shades
Reminding me of all that is …
And all that maybe in the years to come

Rainbows of opportunity colour my thoughts
Exuding roads to choose … and stop
Some with light shining bright within
Others with darkest portents … in shadow

Clear mountain streams sparkle and run
Salmon spawning ideas as they flow …
Upon the rivers of mystery and desire
Washing down the eyes that seek

Will the mists clear and elucidate?
Or… will the fog of doubt cloud the judgement
Making that step into the unknown …
A chasm of worry and despair

But now the lightning of reason sparks the sky
Flashing its message with bolts of certainty
Allowing decisions of such clarity …
That burn the procrastination away
