READING BETWEEN THE LINES (photo) & FORM AND CONTENT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


her published poem's
quite lovely to look at:
the black words stacked
on left and right in columns
of only two with a wide
blank blue space between
like a cloudless California sky,
the bracketing words
like silhouetted palms

but the poem's nigh on to impossible
to track, long before the eye
embraces the words on the right
the words on the left fade
from comprehension
into the deep blue

this grasping then losing of words
develops a life of its own
(does one breath understand the next?)
but the subsuming of meaning
to the moment remains uncomfortable:
there's still something to be said
for compatible form and content

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,
