Laying your head down tired
after the workings of another day,
and finding silence in the dark
tunnel of night, and drifting away
to places reflecting this world but beyond,
forming in intricate combinations
and retellings, sometimes bizarre,
that we call our intimate dreams.
Here in this time the body is refreshed,
and in this tunnel the mind is washed
and the soul reformed ready for new
workings as night becomes day and
you wake out of stillness to move on
and on in the cycle that is your life.
