SENTINEL POETRY (ONLINE) #15     FEBRUARY 2004

DURLABH SINGH


SLEEP!

 

Sleep, sleep
I would have you sleep
Like the faltered rose
Reflected in hour glass
The pouring sand
Keeping the time alive.
 
The wind you are
The face in the sea
A blossom in thorns
A perfume under trees.
 
Wake, wake
I would have you awake
In the arms of sun
Where you lean
Behind the clouds
To accumulate riches
Shimmering rooftops
Or the rain in stitches.
