A Surreal Moment

Rating: 3.7
in the midnight hours
my soul abruptly taps
me on my cheek
into wakefulness
all around me
faint shadows of
increasing complexities
and absurdities grow
larger than life and
present a shadow play
on the surrounding blank walls

i let my mind footloose
how many flyovers
to ease the congestion!

my feet inadvertantly
lead me into the southwest balcony
from where i see
the stars losing their shine
the moon fast waning
an occasional light
dotting the vacant inky highway

and the landscape freezes
into a surreal silhouette

'surreal silhoutte' an apt ending to a great imagery. (Bhavukatha at its best)

How many times has my soul tapped me in the midnight hour but unlike you I did not have the thought to observe it. Therefore I did not put it on paper, and had I it would not have been as superb as your effort. One word comes to mind WOW! 10
