Munir Mezyed : The Legend of the Sleeping God

The Legend of the Sleeping God

By Munir Mezyed

I stand on the balcony of the universe;

The world is plunged into silence and tranquility.

The sun slumbers in the palm of my hand,


I sail with the calm winds

Passing all the regions of heaven

In the midst of the stars

Those keep on twinkling

Neither slumber nor sleep seizes them

The boat of poetry moves ahead

Approaching where I stand

It takes me to the goddess of the moon

I grasp the threads of vision

Weaving them odes

So I may behold the disk of the sun

Falling drops of dew in my palm

And behold my beloved without interruption...

For Lo, the sleeping god, the dreamer

Who has been sleeping for millions of years

Awakes to a new dream...

Love is more adorable than sweet dreams!

Love is more adorable than sweet dreams!
