Chlorophyll? We don't need no stinkin' chlorophyll ...

I lie on the verge of falling asleep, I see unknown pictures
and signs painting themselves behind my eyelids
on the wall of darkness. In the crack between wakefullness and dream, a large letter tries, unsuccessfully, to squeeze in.

Excerpt Tomas Tranströmer - Nocturne
(in my own humble translation)

When are you going to get over your humbleness. I haven't read the originals and I couldn't but it seems to me that you are bang on target with your translations.They always speak to me. Perhaps there's a better word for humble. I get why you have to qualify though..
I LOve Lichen these are beautiful.
