It’s one in the morning
My husband is snoring
And I lay in bed, wide awake

My computer is down
I feel like a clown
My brain just won’t take a break

My mind is a racing
I just started pacing
To the kitchen I go to get tea

As I think of my blog
I trip on the dog
And end up hitting my knee

But I pass by my desk
And have to confess
My blog’s calling me to write

So I turn on the box
And put on my socks
Refusing to turn on the light

I should be in bed
But comments need read
So I read as I sip from my cup

I look at the clock
As it makes a “tick tock”
And can’t believe I’m still up

It’s now three in the morning
My husband’s still snoring
And I’m not one to boast

But as I’m trying to sleep
Not making a peep
I know I just wrote a great post

I’ll be off tomorrow
Some time I can borrow
And sleep till I can’t sleep no more

So it’s back out of bed
To empty my head
My feet just hit the floor.

I have to confess
My mind is mess
I can’t shut it down for the night

So it’s back to my blog
To check my stats log
And micro manage my site

It’s now four in the morning
The dog’s even snoring
As I creep back in bed one more time

I should be asleep
But I’m now counting sheep
And hoping my blog made a dime

Am I the only one that gets creative in the middle of the night?

    Your poem is great! No wonder you could not fall back asleep.

    As you know, my creativity is not correlated with the time in the day, but with the coffee intake.

    By they way, the YouTube ads you put is really strange. I thought it is an ads, but it seems not. I should read your article to figure out what this thing is about!!!

    Well it’s 3AM. I’m often “creative” early hours. But not this morning. Feeling ill, uncreative, and instead reading others’ creativity.

    Thank you for sharing how coffee and creativity go hand in hand for you.


    So, you too are another a.m. creative person. Hope you get to feeling better.
