Sleep
straddles two divides
sheer saddle between the terrestrials
And the celestials…
a bridge, transitory,
that mixes the two exclusive worlds.

Sleep
Sometimes phantasmagoria pierces
the shut eyes…
teasing and shocking the mind
with medley of intense desires
Or terrifying quest.

Sleep
previews what silent chasm
One falls into… soon, but forever

Sleep
a brief death;
A rest awhile ere the final rest.

                                     Tobi Idowu.
