Aheila’s Drabble Day Challenge – Sleep

This is another Drabble Day Challenge from Aheila. The topic today is sleep, something I’m doing very little of the past couple of days.

And this is supposed to be my holiday…



I wish that I could sleep, that I could drop away into the bliss of my dreams. In my dreams where I can fly, where I can visit worlds that do not exist, where I can see loved ones long dead.

Where I can run with wolves.

But, it is hot tonight. So hot that I cannot find the strength to lie down on my warm bed, much less drift off into a content slumber.

So, I sit here and type, for that is what I can do. Sleep will come later, or tomorrow – but my words are here now.
