Daily Prompt: Core


There are nights when sleep is not sleep

dreaming is not dreaming

A restless array of thoughts, niggles and prompts

flicker through as Streaming


Then the days become longer than long

a continuation of night

No flag waving gate nor end or beginning

An un-presence this plight


Though the core of life is still and focussed

when one seeks change

an upgrade, download and restart complain

we must take the time to shutdown


And refresh again…
