Round midnight

the past two nights, around midnight
i've been called awake
no longer feeling aching or tired
my mind is called to think
as if somewhere i could be of use
my body is being called
divined upright, eyes searching
the darkness for some sign of light
and a little green light blinks outside
there is no movement in the room
but my searching eyes
so i fall back to rest straining my ears
for that distant call

awesome, dude! what great imagery! I've experienced this occasionally, too! why is it that at night our souls are awakened so abruptly?? I remember someone saying that 3:00 am was the soul's midnight....compelling reading, Stefan.....thanks
