I was awaken all the night!

Yesterday I had a dream,

That dream became a reality,

I was awakened all the night,

For a quarter nychthemeron, when switched off the light,

Yeah, literary it was dark,

But inside the mind, it was a beacon,

It wasn't far away from the sharp midnight,

I stepped up the stairs,

To be at the slab of my house,

The floor I was and the surrounding was like,

A large turf covered with a black color blanket,

The sky was like a painter abducting the peacock's eye and making that seal in his drawing,

A beautiful cloud floated like a silk fabric in the sky,

A bat flew over me by whispering a secret,

Neither a single tree nor any tree made a movement,

I wondered trees were asleep,

But when I saw the sky and stars made me chuckle,

I realized stars were aroused as I do,

I smiled back at the stars,

I was looking for hours and hours,

A range of clouds conquered my stars,

But the ecstasy the stars gave me was still in the heart,

A gentle rain fell,

I became a partaker of it and still was with nature,

When the rain prince turned into the beast,

Again, I could see one star,

Such an amass of nature's blessings,

Coldness, adventure and all the things,

Felt like a featherless butterfly in front of nature,

I wished to be a nature's child forever,

The sun was peeping for a fresh Today,

The final phase of my realized dream!

Hope you enjoyed my poem. If you have a similar experience let me in the comments !!!

    The wonders of lucid dreaming. I admit at the beginning I thought it might be about a nightmare but it turned out to be a beautiful moment of nature appreciation. Loved it Esala.

    Watching a beautiful starry night is the best feeling. You watched the sun breaking through to morning. I learned a word too. Good work.

    The descriptive imagery is breathtaking, from the "black color blanket" of the ground to the "peacock's eye" in the sky, creating an immersive sensory experience. Bravo on this lyrical and deeply moving work!

    how I wish I could share a dream or two but my dreams take on a very eerie subject that I'm sure most would never understand. Most often, neither do I.
