Intonation for Insomniacs: Inspired by PSH Poetry Prompt 4-16-13
I've been told
that my voice is comforting--
that in the early morning hours

with diminished sight in the other,

The prompt for April 16, 2013 was submitted by Eloise Klein Healy from Sherman Oaks, California: "Write a recipe for curing sleeplessness."
Winter and the cold snow bring the dark-eyed juncos. My heart, full, watches.
