Deep Sleep

A steady hum of silence permeates
the quietest of hours
when sleep dominates a restless brain.
Your mind is almost perceivable
as consciousness drifts to alien locations
only explored and navigated
by those fearless explorers,
dreamers.
Of what do you dream? I wonder,
as, so still, you lie in your
cocoon of vibrant imagination.
Cast your line and reel in the moon
or reach out and stir up the sky
into a cloudy, disheveled mixture.
But always keep your bearings
and return to your North Star.
