Die drie uur ding
by Gerhardus Keen

Wat is dit met drie uur ding
en slaap wat 'n mens ontwyk
en dan is dit ook die "donker uur"
wanneer die meeste mense beswyk
selfs Paul Simon het daaroor gesing
in sy "Sound of silence" - wel bekend
toe hy sy lied se woorde skryf,
"Hello darkness, my old friend."
Ek wens ek het sy talent gehad
om die woorde so te laat vloei

Anaesthetise
by Soham Basu

Put me to sleep
I'm so tired of the day
And so scared of the night

by Evelyn Judy Buehler

I so adored late hours. I was what you would call a night owl,
As fireflies seldom appear, until creamy moon is on the prowl.

I loved the quiet and peacefulness, and staring at a big moon,

My Roof
by Olith rateng

Twenty three lines
That's how much the cracks on my roof branch
Two flies and three spiders
The number of nocturnal visitors I have seen
Gray is an interesting color
Or so the cobwebs on my roof make me think

Leaves are terrifying in the dark
When their shadow is projected in the night
They sway and make dancing dragons

Two Insomniacs
by Gustav Falkenthros

When the sun has drowned
And time is but a climb
When the leaves have browned
And dark has left its mark

I know our minds are interwtined
Mourning a late night's morning light
