Before I sleep

#poetry

An aurora of a new tomorrow

Far away from betrayal and sorrow

A lightning streak to follow

Voices so euphonious and mellow

Hearts benevolent but not so hollow

Will I be able to sow and reap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

Foraging Into the woods

To go lost, if I could

Charismatic fireflies under the hood

Catch them to enlighten my den, I would

Be enchanted as I did in my childhood.

In pursuit of unfulfilled desires assembled in heap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

To live in a bewitching meadow,

Where there is no class, creed or its shadow

No race, disgrace or discrimination to endow

Be an illuminating candle by the Window

And opening my eyes to a new rainbow

Would I ever take such a gigantic leap

Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

Beautiful poem Samreen. You write so well.

I am reminded of two of my favourite and most revered saints.

Swami Vivekananda had said: Arise and Awake.

Paramahansa Yogananda says: Awake! Sleep no more in delusion! And the name of the movie made on his life is- Awake !!

Fred, I really love the way how you correlate things when you write, it’s so beautiful. 😊 I feel so honored you read my every poem and share your thoughts. You are right there is no limit for a free bird to spread its wing even though there may be obstacles. Oh, here too it rained for a little while in the afternoon and I felt so elated to see a rainbow while we were on our way for shopping. It was really beautiful, just few days back I wrote a poem on rainbow and saw it yesterday after a long long time. 😊
Thank you Fred and I so wish you a wonderful week ahead as wellπŸŒΈπŸŒΊπŸŒ»πŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸ™‚

This is such a beautiful poem Samreen with so much love here in “shall I wake before I sleep”. You captured so many emotions and questions we struggle with and brought the joy and wonder of childhood with so much hope. So uplifting where we could all live as one. β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ™πŸ‘β€οΈ.
Love this!❀️ Cindy

Wow. Samreen your poetry is always so lovely, and this poem is no exception. What a beautiful poem. This stanza here is my favorite,
To live in a bewitching meadow,
Where there is no class, creed or its shadow
No race, disgrace or discrimination to endow
Be an illuminating candle by the Window
And opening my eyes to a new rainbow

Would I ever take such a gigantic leap
Shall I be awake, before I sleep??

Just amazing.πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜Š Have a wonderful Sunday, Samreen.

Beautiful poem with each para and stanza with beautiful pics. This is nature’s circle what I understand is the sleep at night before you awake in the beautiful morning with so many desires to fulfill.
Loved it.

You are great my dear and I believe each one has their own in their own particular way. Some chose wonderful topics to write some write beautifully, some write but don’t connect, some connect though don’t write that well so it varies from person to person. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–
