To The Deeps

 At midnight

When half the world is asleep,

The prying eyes of the nocturnal owl

Stay alert for mice dozing undergrownds.


A turtle slowly prowls in a swamp

Disturbing the resting fishes

On the shallow waters.


Somewhere, you are confined

Asleep in your room dreaming.

While I stay awake questioning.


Am I part of your dreams tonight?

Would I take part in your life

When you awake in the morning?


The night ends

With the owl catching no mice.

The fishes has gone to The deeps,

But the turtle hasn’t reach where ’tis going.

Just like me with my doubts never fading.


But nevertheless always wishing

That one day I’d stop questioning

And to The deeps I’d just let the fishes

The Deeps is the English term for the Hebrew Tehom, found in the opening verses of the Book of Genesis. It is believed by Biblical scholars to come from the Sumerian word Tiamat, the name given to the Salt Water, and means “The Mother of All Life”, (from Sumerian “Ti” = Life, “Ama” = Mother), a title that in the Bible was later given to Eve. (“And the man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living” – (Genesis 3:20).
