Start a poem with the word Lately that must be at least 5 lines.

Thank you!

Lately

Lately my sleep has no power to console,

My lost dreams reek of failure

and I awake to knotted sheets

damp pillows.

I give thanks for the lack of clarity.

Better not to know- for sure.

A cup of coffee for breakfast

and alone in the hall

I snatch my coat from its hook

and face what the morning 

has to offer.

Can the admin/Richard or the Chief Editor Andrea send a pm to featheredwing so that we know if she accepts to set the next challenge?

I won't spend my life setting challenges, I am hoping that somehow people will start assigning others the next ones, without fearing questions why him or her, the one who sets the challenge selects the next one. Easy peasy. In any case, Featheredwing is a username I don't remember from old uka, if she is a newcomer then giving the chance to a newcomer to become part of the new UKA.
