Morpheus and Iris : Pierre-Narcisse Guerin

O Sleep, O Gentle sleep...

Watching a loved one sleep and wondering what they are dreaming is a pleasant preoccupation. Sleep and its myriad dreams are still a subject of fascination for us. It forms a rich seam that artists can draw upon.

While I am no stranger to dreams and their ever changing narratives, somnolence is not something that comes easy to my insomniac existence.

Ironically, this poem is an output of another sleepless night.

Wouldn't it be an ultimate expression of love if we could literally share our dreams? Escape into each others pleasant fantasies; wander hand in hand among the dreamscapes together, looking for magic and memories, far from the maddening crowd...


The Art of Sleep

Where Angels Dream


Sitting by the window

I am watching you sleep

Cuddled up and cosy

While I am counting the sheep


The sound of your breathing

Is so gentle and slow

Those ruby lips are parted

And your face it does glow


You reign across the bed

You take all the space

You adorn the sheets

Softly in velvet and lace


Will you give me room

In your kingdom of bliss

Will you hold me tight

Gift me a lingering kiss


Take me as you fly among the clouds in your sky

Take me as you drift along a contented sigh

Take me where the moonlight casts a silvery gleam

Take me where the sandman dwells and joy reigns supreme

Down the timeless stream

Where angels dream…

♥♥♥


I want to visit places

In those faraway lands

Where mystery and magic

Hide in forbidden sands


I want to travel dreamscapes

That I want us to share

I want this to be more than

Just a casual affair


Let me in your dreams

And I’ll share with you mine

Let’s not let the fading night

Just draw us a line


I walk across the room

And I slip into bed

You sigh and shift close to me

As I kiss your forehead


Take me as you fly among the clouds in your sky

Take me as you drift along a contented sigh

Take me where the moonlight casts a silvery gleam

Take me where the sandman dwells and joy reigns supreme

Down the timeless stream

Where angels dream…

♥♥♥
