**please Wake Up...** - Poem by Fasika Ayalew

With a gentle touch and a move slow
A light streamed through my window
Taking a twinkling steps
The ray danced upon my face

Taken and deep in my sleep
I hid my face under my sheet
The light filtered through my cover
Said to my ears in a whisper
“Please wake up…”

“I won’t wake up but see my dream
Its night time don’t disturb me”
I argued reluctantly

“Please wake up…
You have got to see”
The light insisted
Defiantly I still persisted
“How about my adventure in my sleep
If I wake up from my dream”
“Please wake up, your dream is abstract
Keeping in touch with an illusion
Wake up and be with what is real ‘’

The nudge was hard that I can’t stand
With bleary eyes so I woke up
In the mid of the night
When everywhere is so dark
Ball of illumination, yellow and bright
Has outdone the dark night

'Wake up and see...
With golden rays rested upon
Animals, trees and earth silhouette
Birds perch up in their nest
The night is quiet, my rays are bright
You are sleep while nature shimmers
To miss my beauty as you slumber
Please wake up…
I am the moon let me have your gaze
As I tickle you with my rays”

In the mid of the night
When everywhere is so dark
Ball of illumination, yellow and bright
Has outdone the dark night

Awake and on my bed seated
I saw the light on earth flooded
Moderate brightness and contrast
Flow of rays in balance,
Shaped the moon’s gleeful dance
I gave the moon a surprised look
It said to me “come join the group”

Moon, nature and I conversed
In a language without words
Transcending our difference
It was I, the human being
To the connection, a missing link

Soon radiance came from the east
Beyond the moon so majestic
Moon waved and it was gone
Sun took over at break of dawn
Everywhere the ray glistened
Another day I just witnessed

Latches of day sunrise unfasten
Time remains closed till I open
I was wide awake…
Eager to see what lies ahead
