THE PASSING STORM (photo art) & SHIFTING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


center stage no longer filled
with his whirling absence
harshly lit by a sense
of the unfamiliar

only shadows now
sadly surprise attention
shifting among the scenery
and dusty curtains
stored backstage

as daily life plays out
without him

[non-dream free verse poem, written 3-20-14. This is an expansion of something I said on 3-19-14 on my photography blog in reference to my younger brother's death at the end of 2013. Even as I posted it yesterday I realized it could be the beginning of a poem. Photo art "The Passing Storm" (4-24-13 12622ev2) 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,
