A Poem – SLEEP

Drifting

Drifting

Drifting

Suspended between realities

Deep Breath. Slowing heart rate

Powering down

Yielding to the day’s fatigue and gravity

A type of death. A daily death. Practice for the next reality

Visions appearing

Now getting thinner, now darkening

Then nothingness, darkness, time suspended, unaware, of everything, until rest is sufficient

Then a stirring, a slow stirring

Powering up

Aware of the breath, the heartbeat

A new reality appearing. An awakening. Light growing. Ready for the gravity of the day

A type of resurrection. A daily resurrection

Practice for the next reality
