A Moment Awake

Poem By Raj Arumugam

from deep sleep one wakes
to a fleeting moment:
glimpses of the room
the window at which the darkness hangs
the gentle wind outside amongst the trees

and one floats back into sleep

and the moment awake fleets through the mind
at dinner, hours later

Comments about A Moment Awake

Wow, this is so true. The mind seems to keep an indelible record of it's impressions; which is not to say, though disease or lack of current, we do not often forget or find ourselves unable to replay certain parts of it.
What a beautiful moment. I love how you took a moment in life most take for granted and turned it into art. Well done and thank you for sharing :)

we love words
and unwilling to exert, to see for ourselves
we grasp at revelations, at what others can tell us;
and we suckle at concepts and ideas

Socrates dies, sleep easy, dear Athens;
Socrates is found guilty
of asking questions,
one too many;

About Nine Crows

a group flies
of about nine crows
against the bright sky;
and each lands on a tall gum tree

Let There Be Peace

let there be peace in each heart
a peace that is independent of place and circumstance;
a quiet that is not reliant on ideas or dogma
or religion or club or leaning on another;
