Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Restorative Sleep


bathe thy wounds
in dreams of life
and wake to strive

onward
for yet another day
for sleep

restores
psyche with visions
amazing insights

washing clean
souls excommunicated
by errant misdeeds


with ritual balm
blessed sleep
misfortune cleans

envy ambition hate
from an infinite reservoir
wells of inner strength


waiting
to be drawn
upon

if we
choose
to walk

to
the wells
of life

renewal
to draw
sanctified water


an inner self
a divine soul
heaven aspires

which raises repentance
as positive potential
while the tyrant dreams


thus committing no evil
sleep is the inquisitors
the touchstone of souls

which cannot
be suppressed
stirs indefinitely

therefore
recuperate
rest upon

insight gained
viewed within
from sire God


as a lesser miracle
communicated to
the great host held

captive nightly
by
restorative sleep


I bathe
my
wounds

in
dreams
of life

and
wake to
potential

drawing upon
wells of life
inner vision

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
