Shut-eye Express

Sleep
tunnels
thru my
veins like
a freight
train —
each
yawn
a trill
whistle.

    What a terrific use of figurative language. If you don’t mind, I’m going to share this with the creative writing class I teach (giving you full credit, of course). It’s such a perfect example of what I want them to learn to do.

    • Thank you kindly, Sandra! Yes, go right ahead. I am humbled by your praise. If it weren’t for teachers like you, I wouldn’t be the poet I am today. I give all the credit to my Junior High School Honors English teacher…she taught me how to use active voice and avoid dreaded ‘to be’ verbs. Keep inspiring those young minds…your presence in their lives makes a world of difference! Have a wonderful day, my friend 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
