Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

24: Waking Up


Slowly i seem to be waking up
But still the wondering:
Who is waking up?
The city betrays a deeper layer
What is this dream?
Penetrating all the senses
Human existence so dense
Living twenty-four-seven
The city invites me to go further
‘Look beyond the old dream
I offer a new dream of hopes sky-high
Speed up and lose control!’
But i know i am tired of dreaming
All these old and new castles of illusion
Try to lure me back into deep sleep
But i know this dreamworld
Has nothing to offer me
It’s just a circle of never ending stories

  1. wonderful poem, Pieter. I like the expression you used “castles of illusion”. Have a nice weekend, warm regards Mitza

    • Thank you Mitza πŸ™‚ glad you like it. And the castles point out to the big towers in the city, but can also be seen metaphysically πŸ™‚
      Wish you a lovely sunday! Kind regards, Pieter
