Variations on the Word Sleep


I would like to watch you sleeping,
which may not happen.
I would like to watch you,
sleeping.
I would like to sleep
with you,
to enter
your sleep as its smooth dark wave
slides over my head

and walk with you through that lucent
wavering forest of bluegreen leaves
with its watery sun & three moons
towards the cave where you must descend,
towards your worst fear

I would like to give you the silverbranch,
the small white flower,
the one word that will protect you
from the grief at the center
of your dream,
from the grief
at the center.
I would like to follow you
up the long stairway
again & become
the boat that would
row you back carefully,
a flame in two cupped hands
to where your body lies beside me,
and you enter it
as easily as
breathing in

I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment only.
I would like to be that unnoticed
& that necessary.

~Margaret Atwood

Summit of Mount Jo 9/24/10 A few friends were worried about me. They were worried about me hiking Mount Jo by myself, so I took this video to show how many people were around that day if I needed assistance. I even chatted with several and had a few people share a glass of wine with me at the summit. :) Mount Jo. 9/24/10 After the crowd left This is what the summit looked like... with no people on it. In the previous video I took, I showed all the people who had made this same hike to her summit.
