Should I call it merely a dream ?

Each night earth life suspended, and will,
my consciousness or migrant self, leaving
the unconscious torso, still abed ,but still
sharing the same breath, lands me
at a transcendental wakefulness in sleep
as if life dreams of itself or one could say

the spirit returns to its original home
and no longer remembers where
it lives. As a replica, mirroring the sun-lit
world, or a world behind the curtain of sleep,
the entity can't be marked as a measure
of my holding even if I spend a dream -time

as if in my home-land and at my own place,
with my own countrymen, turned dream-folks,
only possibility to meet the dead ,but attention
freed from thoughts makes you a universal
perceiver. It's possible even reasonable to tell
myself that this alone is real at the moment, with

its whole damn business of living ,I call it still
a dream which is lost as I awake.

I like this. I fully understand what your poem excellently describes. It is a complicated thing to describe and I think you have done it very well.
