Seeking the God of Sleep

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

'The Abode of Sleep is near the back country of the Cimmerrians, in a deep valley where the sun never shines and dusky twilight wraps all things in shadows. No cock crows there; no watchdog breaks the silence; no branches rustle in the breeze; no clamor of tongues disturbs the peace. The only sound comes form the gently flowing steam of Lethe, the river of forgetfulness, where the waters murmuring entice to sleep...there came Iris in her cloak of many colors, traliing across the sky in a rainbow curve, and the dark house was lit up with the shining of her garments.... ~Taken from Edith Hamilton's Mythology.
