Is My Soul Asleep?



Is my soul asleep?
Is my soul asleep?
Have those beehives that work
in the night stopped? And the water-
wheel of thought, is it
going around now, cups
empty, carrying only shadows?

No, my soul is not asleep.
It is awake, wide awake.
It neither sleeps nor dreams, but watches,
its eyes wide open
far-off things, and listens
at the shores of the great silence.

Hi Smiley :-)

Sorry I haven't been by to visit, but with keeping with my new years resolution not to post on the blogs (other than yours of course), I have been diverting the temptation by staying away all together :-)

Good Morning to SB and Pink too :-) What ever happened to that chat room SB?

Well gotta run for my fingers go over another site, lol.

Later and Have a Good Day :-)
