Poem: "Joseph's Dream" by Philip Chircop


a wake … a sleep … a dream
asleep, a dream
in the middle of the night, in total darkness
an audible vision like none felt before
a shiver down my spine
a quickening of the heart
a mantra repeated deep within: wake up
awake
translating the dream into flesh
a whisper speaks very loud in the bowels of my being
a clear whisper noticed by the heart
spoken in the light of day:
choose life
give life
protect life
no longer a dream
now a daily choice

life
