Delicious Azure – a poem

Unannounced, the silvery azure shines wan light

Down on a sleeper without call or care,

Who has known no unconscious transition, ineffable

Passing from wakefulness to pseudo-death evanescent.

*

The secret advances of night demons

Bay beneath the silver letting windows,

Unheard for sleepers slumbering softly…

Until they are awaked, deliciously aroused.

*

Yet the demons tarry not and take off

When the sleeper rises from his dreaming sojourn,

Those creatures diabolical vanished as the moon

When a wayward cloud plume scuds in front.

*

What of all the secret worlds we never know?

When shall a flicker our attention catch?

If ever, mayhaps, or again never to us trouble

Either way, this sleeper to slumber returns, bathed in delicious azure.
