BOXED IN (photo) & WAITING (dream tanka pair) by Roswila
what’s more surprising,
flooding me with both ire
that her “rescuers” had boxed
her for shipment like a turkey
or, that she’s almost
full term hugely pregnant,
waiting on the lawn,
still trussed up and trusting
that someone gives a hoot
[two tanka on a dream of 1-11-13. Oh, yeah I’ve been quietly p.o.’d and feeling sorry for myself for a few days. This was one of the earliest dreams of the night and the most lively. The rest were about calmly – even blandly -- achieving various sorts of balance. Sigh. Progress isn’t always exciting, is it? Photo “Boxed In” by Roswila]
