NACHTAKTIV

I slept all through that
I slept and slept
Sleeping the sleep that rests
The sleep that strengthens
……..and devines, sleep of crystal clear
mornings after a rain
Sleep that keeps you safe

Sleep that makes you tick
and cures, revitalizes
Sleep that brings you back around again
Sleep mysterious sleep
Sleep that is unknown to us
where we dissolve back
……………………………..into the universe
Where things outside our ability to understand
………….resurge and undulate and sparkle
Refulgence
while a legion of sleepwalkers
…………….walk past our windows we sleep
Talking in our sleep prayers
………….to the light, waking as if
Nothing ever happen’d, the dawn chorus
of birds, knows something, but, what?

These boulders are scattered all over the Sandia Mountains, they are a type of granite known as “gneiss,” a composite of quartz & mica & other sedimentary igneous rocks, somewhat crumbly ---- March 14, 2020 ---- photo by MW ---- I always think of Henry Moore or Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures when I see these, and even Isamu Noguchi
