THE LONG SLEEP

THE LONG SLEEP
It’s so chilly, some have the right idea
They hibernate through the cold each year
Each time the winter snows approach
They find a den and settle in their herbal couch.

We are wise and stay awake all year
But is that through choice or frantic fear?
Born from many, many decades past,
Was there a time we slept through winter’s blast?

We are so wise we have forgotten our connections
The channels through dreams that gave explanations.
Most seem to wander in a constant daytime dream
When we should be connected to the constant stream.

The stream which brings much needed information
The root and basis of our most important foundation.
This is where you would begin when building your house
So why do you hesitate and sleep like a tired Dormouse?

The dream is manifest the whole year round
As we humans tread on any solid ground
The wise ones rest as winter rests in recollect
This time of recuperation we should not neglect.

When the buds push through the warming ground
Bears clean their bodies with the Oshia found
Before they feed on salmon from the river rising
Fighting to catch the lords of the river leaping.

We need to find those essential avenues again
Leave the long sleep to those who need its gain.
You are granted access to all knowledge stored
Meditation brings the key which all can afford.

  1. David this is an excellent poem..

    I for one feel as if I have been in a LONG SLEEP my friend over this winter period.. Lots of adjustments have been needed as I change my external world and adapt my internal world..

    “We are so wise we have forgotten our connections
    The channels through dreams that gave explanations.
    Most seem to wander in a constant daytime dream
    When we should be connected to the constant stream.”

    Something I needed to be reminded of recently.. Blessings xxx

    Have a Peaceful weekend David..

    Congratulations, Dear David, for this beautiful poem.

    I do so agree with you that: “We need to find those essential avenues again”,
    and I am convinced that: “Meditation brings the key which all can afford”.

    But do we always find that precious KEY when we meditate? I doubt that it is all that easy, but certainly worth trying, as long as we remember if ” We are wise and stay awake all year
    But (then) is that through choice or frantic fear?”.

    Thank you for reminding us that Spring takes the place of Winter and that Summer then is not far away.
    With love and much light.
    Eugene.
