wondering, 
fearing, 
doubting, 
dreaming dreams 
no mortal ever dared to dream before.

with my eyes closed, 
I began to enjoy this wonderful play of colours and forms, 
which it really was a pleasure to observe. 
Then I went to sleep 
and the next day I was fine. 
I felt quite fresh, 
like a newborn.
