    a  Dream of Sleeping, a Chance of Waking Empty a Dream of Sleeping, a Chance of Waking

    Sat 14 Jun 2014, 9:26 am
    If for just one morning, I could rise and shine,
    Feeling good about waking and living,
    Instead of the usual caffeine rejuvenation
    And a plastic smile to a rising sunshine,
    Then I might not feel so bad about
    Finding the same world I left at night.
    But it is that same, plastic, daily world
    Which brings out the cold shoulder in me,
    Brings out the watchful eye, cautious tongue;
    Brings about a plastic, unfeeling me.

    If for just one morning, I could rise and shine,
    Radiantly flowing with the magic of life
    That abounds through free emotion,
    Uninhibited laughter, smiles, compassion;
    Warmth and sunlight in a soft word,
    Gentle touch of Mother Nature's virgin kiss.
    Yet, I awake to a plastic sun, artificial rain,
    Mechanical people living robot lives;
    Laughing, crying, all the mail-order emotions,
    Socially accepted happinesses by status-graph.
    Oh, for the love of dreams! would I merely
    Close these dulled eyes and sleep long and far,
    To awaken in silence, deep in dead space,
    And watch the plastic galactic pinwheel spin.
