EMBEDDED (photo art) & IN A WINTER ROSE GARDEN (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


if not for a bright beauty
slipping at odd times down
the pale daylight few visitors
would ever come to this armored
long-limbed languor, this daunting
absence whose silence speaks louder
than all its gnarled and nodding shadows

[non-dream free verse poem written in January of 2012. Yes, I note that use of the word "armored" in the fourth line. It was in the final image of the dream poem I posted here yesterday and may very well be what triggered memory of this older (non-dream) poem. Photo art "Embedded" (1-19-11 10437v2) by Roswila -- this is one of those photos that looks much better larger, so click on it for a bigger version. I would have posted it here in a larger format but when I tried that it overwhelmed the poem, and I see picture and poem always as a pair.]

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
