Sleep. A Sonnet by Manatita
I lay down finally, and the inner silence begins.
So relaxing; so, ‘end-of-the-day’ feel,
And yet, so vibrant and restorative!
There’s something magical about sleep!
I close my eyes; allow the body to rejuvenate.
All tensions drop away; office stress diminishes;
No more agonising moments with colleagues,
Buses, trains, dear ones and crowded markets.
Bills can wait. I’ve crossed the last note
From my to-do list …
I drift peacefully into reverie …lightness … gone…
Ah! So delicious! I go forth into another daybreak.
The Light of the Sun awakens my Consciousness;
I look forward to repeat this cycle, when dusk sets in.
