Night Has Come to Sleep Paralysis
Tankas of the madness of night
A girl meets the madness of night
Night Has Come (tanka)
They came and now they are gone
But there was a time
When spring’s blossoms ruled the day
Kissing hopes for tomorrow
Settling Hours (tanka)
Which brought comfort to the day
Now scours through the night
Searching for some reasoning
To make it all feel worth while
When victim fell into lair
Of madness and death
And with the last screams was heard
Forgive me for what I am
The night transforms in three tankas. Classically a tanka is a short poem of 5 lines following this syllable order: 5/7/5/7/7. Rhyming is optional. In English, most tankas do not rhyme. Modern poets are successfully challenging the tanka's classical 5/7/5/7/7 structure. It is not uncommon to see tankas written in freer syllable style.
One of the weirdest nights Arlene I ever had was at a dance at San Francisco's Norwegian Club. I was made a honorary Norwegian at this affair. It was one of many fun awards given out that evening. Still, I was surprised and honored. I was equally surprised to see two of our friends there. Arlene and I thanked them for coming. They said that they wouldn't have missed this for the world. We joined them at their table and spent the rest of the night drinking, laughing and dancing. On the following day Arlene called one of the friends to talk about that night and thank them, once more, for coming. They didn't know what Arlene was talking about. Arlene tells me, so I call the second person. He insisted he wasn't at the even't either. He even volunteered witnesses, who would confirm that he was with them. Who were those two people Arlene and I were with last night? Was it the alcohol? Was it an elaborate joke? Weird.
Happenings like this enter many individuals lives. Things that defy explanation. I'm sure. that there was a explanation, to what happened to Arlene and me, out there somewhere. But no one was hurt, so why not enjoy the riddle? There are some riddles that require our attention (like when my family thought the house was haunted) that require our attention and should be solved. The question is: Are people being hurt or in danger of bring hurt? If so, it is our responsibility to step up and do something. With that being said, this is a wonder we live in. Splendors, or happenings. that defy (or at least stretch) imaginations grace everyday. The beauty of a rainbow is a perfect example. The rainbow is glorious sight. Arlene and Martin enjoying an evening with two familiar strangers. The unexplained marvels which wander into our lives, making our lives even better. A special gift our world is offering us to Enjoy.

Thing that go bump in the night
Sleep paralysis is a phenomenon during which an individual is unable to move during falling asleep or awakening, but is aware of their surroundings. It is often accompanied by frightening hallucinations to which one is unable to react because of paralysis and perceived physical experiences, such as a strong current running through the upper body. Sleep paralysis poses no immediate risk to those who experience it, although it occasionally causes significant distress.
