Varanasi Ramabrahmam

(27-11-1953 / Vegeswarapuram, India)

The Sleep


The sleep is natural to many
But it denies itself to so many

Sleep is calmness within
When ego rests in The Self

Sleep pervades into
Inner recesses of consciousness
And the awareness recedes

The sleep is silence
To happenings
Within and without of the body
Conscious but unaware

The sleep is the experience of the Self
And The Self is the sleep’s seer
Guide and terminator

The sleep is cessation of
Mental activities within
And is free from interference of self-consciousness

Is tonic to mental ailments and malfunctions
The sleep is the bliss, the peace
And the tranquility of mind

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
