sleep on

Poem #2 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

do not listen too hard
to your dreams
you should know
you will not stop traveling
simply because of slumber

dreams are a chance perceived
every night
a new gamble

you will not always know
if you’ve won or lost
or what they mean
dreams will lay the way
in mist and smoke before you

stay true
to your heart
do not surrender
your good reasons
or shy from a troubled moment

for in these restless visions
meaning may be obscured
behind a moment

sleep on
dream your chances
