PERPETUAL MOTION (photo art) & NO UNDERSTANDING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


there may be thousands
of miles between
and years of changes,
but nothing's truly new at all:
the same eyes, the same ears
perceive and paste the same stifling
patterns onto the world again and again
yet chances for freshness still rise
with every breath and rest
between systole and diastole,
interstices winking into
and out of existence
beneath the radar of labels,
begging no understanding
nor even any question

[non-dream free verse poem written late March 2014. Photo art "Perpetual Motion" (3-26-14 002v7) by Roswila]

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,
