HNT - Sleep

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Sleep
Arduous, stubborn, entangled sleep
Where demons find an idle mind
then hide between the sheets
wrapping themselves around unsuspecting legs
waiting for morn

Vixen said...

Oh Dana....that looks like a PAINTING it's so perfect.

Very well done. HUGE kuddos. Just breathtaking.

:)

Boo said...

What can I add to what everyone else has already said? You've really outdone yourself, Dana. Can I come climb in with you? You look like you could use a good snuggle.

Matt-Man said...

Great poem and fan-damn-tas-tic lighting Dana. Cheers!!

Turnbaby said...

WOW--that's just so lovely. I love the poem as well. I have chocolate sheets and undoubtedly will think of this the next time I slip them onto the mattress.

Stunning.

I Smile 2 Much said...

Ooooh. These words are *so* powerful. Says so much. PERFECT pose. Very deep, sensual & so entangled. So much depth in both your picture & your post. And your beauty always shines through Dana. I luv it!

Happy "Wrapped Around" HNT to you .... *muah*

Mariposa said...

Well, they say that the world will be better if we all get the sleep we need... ;)

You look so calm...sexy...and lovely!

Happy HNT!

Average Chick said...

Oh wow! Beautiful body in an awesome looking bed!!!

HHNT!

Jay said...

I would be tempted to wake you. I don't know why, or what I would have planned of course, but I would just be tempted to wake you up for some reason. ;-)

I'd love so much to take a shot so beautiful as this sometime. I love it.

Charlene said...

i love this shot sweetie!!

Mike said...

Oh Dana,
This is such a wonderful picture and pose of you. You look so peacefull and a world away in your dreams.
A very HHNT

An Artist Exposed said...

Timeless... classy... beautiful. One of the best of all time for me. HHNT!

Anndi said...

You've outdone yourself, Dana.

Biscuit said...

So funny that the first words that popped into my head were words that others have used..."Oh, Dana..." I'm wondering if anyone else needed help lifting their jaw to close their mouth.

This is just simply gorgeous.

Ms. Lily said...

Wow, truly beautiful.
HHNT!!

Dana said...

Os, sometimes it takes a little magic! *wink*

Ms. I, mmmm ... caramel cream!

Garbonzo, thank you!

Dana said...

*sweet*, thanks!

SS, it's starting to be one of my favorites as well.

Vixen, thank you!

Elle said...

Damn! It's such a beautiful picture, but right now, it's making me jealous because I have to leave sleep behind and go to work :(

You look lovely!

Dana said...

Boo, absolutely! Yes, I could use a good snuggle!

Matt-Man, yay! Someone likes the poem too!

Turnbaby, you know, some people have brown sheets - I like that yours are chocolate!

Real Live Lesbian said...

What a gorgeous tangle...and the words....


the words are perfect.


You, dear Dana, are an artist.

Dana said...

I Smile, I've started looking forward to Thursdays!

Mariposa, if you find a way to get all of that sleep in, please let me know!

Average Chick, thank you!

Dana said...

Jay, I'm sure - whatever the reason - it would be in my best interest *giggle*

13 Messages, that is quite a compliment - thanks!

Charlene, thank you!

Dana said...

Mike, sleep does take me a world away at times, and then there are the exceptions!

Artist, wow! Thank you!

Anndi, sometimes getting lucky works!

Dana said...

Biscuit, *blushes* Thank you!

Ms. Lily, thank you!

Elle, it does make you want to crawl right back into bed, doesn't it?

Mike said...

"where do you go to my lovely" in your dreams? far away and in pleasent lands/worlds i hope?

Micky-T said...

You really should look further into creative photography.

Anonymous said...

Makes me want to curl back up in the bed. I love this.

Anonymous said...

Very artistic. I think my sheets are a similar color.

Great shot, Dana! :)

P. and S. said...

Beautiful...I love the lighting.

Jormengrund said...

I have to say that's a great poem, and a beautiful picture to complement the words!

Usually, when I see something like that, I get to hear these words:

"Gimme more covers"

So I like yours much better!

Anonymous said...

I love this picture, the lighting,the colors..everything about it is just gorgeous. HHNT!

Knight said...

Something is up with my computer and I can't see anything but black. Damn!

Karen said...

Wow. That almost looks like a painting. Amazing.

Bad Bad Girl said...

Oh that's a sexy pic... I'm trying to adjust my screen cause maybe I can see more... lol

Dana said...

RLL, because it came from an artist, that is a wonderful compliment!

Mike, at times, far away but "wanting" places. At others, the demons rest in my idle mind.

Micky, I'm actually considering signing up a photography class through the local community college.

Dana said...

Laken, it makes me want to do the same thing!

FF, thank you!

P & S, thank you, too!

Dana said...

Jormengrund, when you are the only one in the bed, no one complains!

Swingerwife, thank you!

Knight, if I am to believe the comments, you missed a good one!

katherine. said...

this may be my favorite so far.

the poem is poignant

Nolens Volens said...

As I've said before, I like how you preface your picture with a quote or a poem. Getting yourself entangled in the sheet as a symbolic wrestling with a demon was just awesome. HHNT!

Mike said...

I hope that not too many demons rest in your mind!

Lapis Ruber said...

That's a fabulous picture. If I have your permission I would like to feature it on my photoblog. May I? Happy HNT.

Dana said...

Karen, I just looked at it again (I try not to look at my pictures usually) and was surprised to see that painting quality too!

Bad Bad Girl, I think that might have been Knight's problem - it's a bit of a dark photo - difficult to see if the screen isn't tilted just right.

Kat, *blushes* Thank you!

Dana said...

Nolens Volens, often times I can find a famous quote that fits the picture, but once in a while I have to get a little more nekkid and expose my own poetry. That is often far more difficult that exposing my flesh.

Mike, I try to chase them out quickly when they decide to play there!

Lapis, Ummm ... yes! Of course! I am quite flattered!

Flyinfox_SATX said...

I think you should have this picture professional painted as an oil painting and put up! I would buy it in a heartbeat!

asweetnectar said...

I am stunned by your photo. Absolutely georgeous! HHNT my dear.

d2b said...

Nice, really nice!

Happy HNT!!!

Bond said...

incredible lighting here Dana...perfectly captured

Mojo said...

That is just astonishingly, achingly beautiful.

Well played!

figleaf said...

Mmm, chocolate candy stripes! :-) Seriously, it's a great photo, Dana, and a nice mix of the awkwardness of restless sleep with the serenity of repose. (He said all poetic like. :-) )

Happy HNT,

figleaf

Oooh... I love, love, love the lighting on this one! The tangle of sheets is fantastic. You get an A++ this week! HHNT!

P.S. Your comment on my post made me laugh... until I realized the truth behind it! ;)

Anonymous said...

Very sweet, I think it is a lovely shot, HHNT!

Ro said...

Those words I can definitely relate to, for better or for worse!

It's a wonderful photo, too - the light and colour suit the image so perfectly.

Thanks for sharing and a very happy HNT to you :)

Stephanie said...

Stunning, absolutely stunning

HHNT

BTExpress said...

The perfect spooning position. May I?

Moosekahl said...

damn girl...my shot wasn't even up for 30 seconds before you saw it! I'm chatting with Os and he was impressed too.

Hope you get some "peaceful" sleep soon.

Vixen said...

I've put you up sweetie. :)

Curvaceous Dee said...

Mmm - that pictures makes me want to pull aside the sheets and dishevel you :)

xx Dee

Trée said...

Gorgeous artistic HNT. My favorite of all you have done so far. The light and colors are perfect and the pose looks like it could have been in a painting. Bravo!

Bina said...

Oh my freaking Lord! That is a NICE one! Looks like a portrait that some rich guy would have in his den or something.

Very nice Dana, very nice.

Anonymous said...

A classic photo, a throw back to the something you would see back in early 60s, from the lighting to the subject! Wonderful! This is a keeper.

Evening said...

OH DANA, this is a beautiful picture. It is so soft and peaceful. I love this. I actually think it would be gorgeous hanging framed in a bedroom.
BEAUTIFUL!
