I love the lines "when falls the cognitive slumber/body slips into slumber". I'm an insomniac so I guess for me it would have gone more like " when fails a cognitive blunder/body misses slumber." I also like that the rhyme and meter do not follow a strict structure. Nice work keep it up.

Thanks Megan! In deep meditation, we may slip into sleep and yet be restfully self aware minus body. Turiya.
