the awakening
while you dream you are asleep
strews sand in your eyes

    Ellie, this one is very interesting. It makes me think of an author I studied many years ago in Spain . All I remember is the author was Unamuno, something like that. And one of his themes was one that has been explored by many others: how our whole life is but a dream!
