Artemisia Gentileschi (1593–1653)
‘Sleeping Venus’
Date: c1625-30
“Sleep is a Hint of Lovely Oblivion” ~ D.H.Lawrence

Slumber~some…Some of us do, some of us not

Insomnia, Sleepless Spirit, Haunted Soul

Nightmare Visions in Dayglow

Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Venus

Thwart with racing highways of the brain

Endeavour to drive insane

Fast and Furious you know how it goes

When will it stop, no-one knows

Contrasting slumber, sleeps

As awake, insomnia keeps

A Beauty and the Beast

Slumber~some Feasts
