Poem: "Walking Through Sleep and Dreams"

This poem came out of the June 4, 2013 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by siege.  It has been sponsored by Shirley Barrette.  You can read more about the indriso form online.  You can read more about sleepwalking and dreamwalking online.

Walking Through Sleep and Dreams
-- an indriso

In sleepwalking, the mind does not transfer;
It stays within its doze, and bides the night,
While restless feet trespass where dreams may spur.

In dreamwalking, the body does not stir;
It lies upon the sheets in soft moonlight,
While wayward thoughts reach out to him or her.

The mind and body each may take their flight;

They're bound together, but not locked -- not quite.
