2:10 A.M.


He reveals the deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him. – Daniel 2:22

It wasn’t 1983 anymore and Zebra wasn’t playing on MTV, still little difference for life was still a storm, and a dream. The same dream. And behind the door was a mystery, and I wish I knew, now that I know, what to do, how to do it!

The small voice whispers, like rain drops on paper, just a little bit, nothing like an angel’s roar. Something surrounds it like a soft worn habit, that tells me nothing of what it’s here for. Still so quickly, I must follow, take my spirit and beg my leave. Go from my warm sleep and slumber, follow this secret to where it leads.

What we have here, is an old, old story that hardly belongs to just only me. Flights and patterns, the second star right of way. Going off to dreamland eternally. And who should I meet this night, will it be a pleasure or a fright? I’ve heard it said we die and go to judgment when we dream. Please let it be at 2:10 A.M. a pleasing aroma unto my G_D’s hands that reach. Coming down through all this world of weaves, dropping into my own heart just to talk to me.

Leaps and shadows, crawling up my psyche, nothing of interest, guilt or fame. Nothing wanting, no chords of passion, a little dirty secret, to leave a stain. It’s a question, it’s a mystery, sound after sound you leave without any pain. Leaving nothing answered, no destination, the map of all my life still holds no place. Still maybe it’s written by your name.

At 2:10 A.M., I leave as I’m returning, crossing longitudinally, I can’t complain. All the world is in my dominion, as long, as you ask me to obtain. The reflection of your face, someday, I’ll retain, the reflection of your face. – 09.19.2017 – דָּנִיֵּאל

  1. Daniel your writing continues to amaze and touch me, this piece no different from all the other in-depth works you have posted since I started following your wonderful blog. The thought that we die when we dream at least in a sense is a new one to me, but I must admit holds some merit. Keep writing my young friend, it does some of us old timers a world of good.

    • Hi Bill, Thank you my friend for a wonderful comment. You always make me feel like such a junior while in truth very few years set us apart. 😊 The idea of death coming while we sleep and sometimes in dreams is Kabbalah based. I do appreciate your reading and comments Bill, wishing you a great week ahead.

      • I will take your few years age difference as a compliment, and smile. 🙂 I appreciate the lesson on Kabbalah, something that has interested me for many years. I notice the theme in your writing much of the time centers on the Kabbalah. Bless you my young friend for the rest of your week as well. Looking forward to your next post.

  2. I often think our dreams are the regurgitation of our days, or perhaps our years. When you write of dreams you present a different picture, of thoughts of the present, the future. Fascinating idea’s in this piece Daniel, and as always well written in rhyme.

  3. Daniel my brother, your dream interpretation comes at an interesting time in my life, and has much value to me, as does much of your insight when you write. Like your namesake you are here to challenge kings, and bless people with your thoughts put to paper, that are inscribed upon your heart. 2:10 A.M. is a complex piece, written with so much to offer even the simplest of men such as I. Happy Rosh Hashanah brother. Shalom, Den

  4. Daniel, this was beautiful, so full of questions. I identified with so much, as I think many of your readers will. What is behind the door? The mystery that can only be answered in dreams. Well written. ❤

  5. “2:10 A.M.” is another favorite for me Daniel. Each line holds so much that the thinker can chew on and digest. You said it best when you wrote, “What we have here, is an old, old story that hardly belongs to just only me. “ I wish you well Daniel after such a night of wrestling on Jacob’s Ladder. 🙂

  6. I believe it’s the small voices that get to a person every time. That bite, or itch that you wonder where it came from, and why did it pick you? That is the lesson I have gathered from 2:10 A.M. A wonderful piece of prose Daniel, meant for those like me scratching to find out why.

  7. I am new to commenting on your blog, but I have been following your writing for a bit. I was touched by this piece in a way that I wanted to share with you. I too dream so many nights waking between the hours of 2:00 and 3:00 to ponder where I have been. Always without fail, there is a thought, that each dream began with a small voice, telling me something I need to know. Thank you for letting me know that I am not the only one. I take great heart in that. 😉

  8. I read and re-read 2:10 A.M. this morning, and love each word. Why is it most have their dreams in grandeur or horror if it is a nightmare, but so few avoid the simplicity of a simple dream, where there are small voices, and the real mystery’s as well as the answers lye. This was lovely Daniel. ❤

  9. Daniel, I usually ignore my dreams, they are scattered, and distant, and I usually think of them as non-important. That changes after reading your wonderful 2:10 A.M. It appears there might be something important especially to the dreams where there is a small whisper. Thank you. 🙂

  10. I loved the tip of your pen to “Second star on the right”. 2:10 A.M. was full of both spiritual depth as well as mystery. It’s prose like this that brings me back time and again to your blog.

  11. Loved this Daniel. Do you think dreams are always supposed to mean something? If so mine are always full of color, but nothing usually makes sense! 😉

    • Hi Danielle, I am far from being an expert on the dream thing. I have to tell you my dreams I usually don’t remember except for an occasional one such as this. They are in color though, so hey maybe we are on to something. 🙂

  12. Funniest thing Daniel, I saw this post earlier this morning, and commented, and then it just disappeared, post and all, so I will try for number two. Word Press no doubt playing games. I loved this piece for it’s soft point on dreams, and if anything it gave me more faith in what must be waiting for us behind the door. Wonderful music too. ❤ ❤ ❤

  13. Daniel, interesting you should write on this dream at this time. I found so much in it to glum on to and think about. Good stuff. I am currently reading The Prophetic Power of Dreams, Revelations, and the Spirit of Wisdom, by James and Michal Goll. I believe you would find much in their book that you could identify with and that would interest you. Thank you as always for putting out here another great piece!

  14. Dear Daniel, the rhyme was perfect, as was the song, something new for me, as I had never heard of a group called Zebra. I ended up listening to a number of their songs on You Tube and am now hooked. I thank you for that as well as another great work, your words always amaze me. ❤ Heather

  15. ” I wish I knew, now that I know, what to do, how to do it!” I too have felt this feeling often in the last few years, Daniel, but I think you are already doing what is to be done… you’re sharing the Light and Vision of your Journey with others. You inspire me to keep reaching for the Mystery!! Shanah Tovah, my brother!! jen
