I've been sitting here for hours
Thinking of something to write.
But thoughts are spinning wildly.
They disappear into the night.

Stumbling on to a writers block.
Just can't seem to begin.
Feeling like a square peg in a circle.
Forcing a line to fit in.

I think I'll just go to bed.
Perhaps tomorrow my mind will open.
New inspirations will come my way.
Then I'll be back again.

When I awoke this morning,
Guess what I did find?
That once again last night,
I dreamed my dreams in rhyme.

Bursting with inspirations
I rush into my room,
To write them down on paper
Before they leave me soon.

From my pen to paper
They begin to flow.
All the images that came to mind
Not so long ago.

They come to me so fast.
It's hard to write them down.
I'm starting to lose some of them,
They are falling to the ground.

I quickly gather them up
These images from my heart.
And again from pen to paper
I scribble a new start.

Tonight beside my bed
A pen and paper I will keep.
To jot down all my thoughts
That come to me in sleep.

Oh, my goodness, Eloise -
I do it all the time.
Eat, sleep and work
with poems traveling my mind.

Sometimes I might not be
quick enough to put them down ...
I'm glad the rhymes come back
for a second round.

*Lovely thoughts in this one.
I enjoyed it.

Rhyming in dreams
Dreaming in rhymes
Dreaming rhymes
In dreams it seems
Husband wakes
It's three A.M!
Shh don't talk now
And grab that pen!
Write it down
Before it escapes
Not on our deed!
Sorry, too late
More important
Is my rhyme
A house we'll buy
Any old time!

Just kidding, but I know it well. Happens all the time. And you expressed it like a dream!
