What Now?

I wait for the generous spout
Of energy to be tipped my way
To be showered with get-up-and-go
Exhaustion the stealth creeper
A mist descending and shrouding
Action and production in a haze
To crawl from the quagmire
Of procrastination and lethargy
Claw a way to continued function
Obvious without sufficient slumber
But what other than that
Steals the momentary waking vigour
Eliciting dreams of a feather soft bed
And being enveloped in a temporary coma
Of healing and restorative sleep
Back to productive functionality
