Our dreaming state, discerned by mind sedate Elements of cause and effect missing All sense of time absent, as we gyrate Having lost even sense of reasoning There remains no logical sequencing We have no will, when dreams manipulate Puppet on a string, we cease questioning Our dreaming state, discerned by mind sedate Free will gone, unable to meditate We yet go on thus experiencing No will or power, we cannot create Elements of cause and effect missing As we respond to illusions flowing Fear images arise, which we then placate We question not thought forms, bewildering All sense of time absent, as we gyrate Fear or desire, we do not hesitate Aspect of consciousness is accepting Unable to ask flow of time to wait Having lost even sense of reasoning Difference between waking and sleeping Unknown if our stupor does not abate If waking too, like a dead man walking What matters randomness of seeming fate Our dreaming state 10-April-2021
