DOWN THE DRAIN (photo art) & AT FIRST (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


... it seems to be a swirling hole
or more mundanely a matter
of advancing cataracts

but no it's something as logical
as a nest in these bud heavy
embracing branches

at least that's what pleases
the mind to think and ends
all the casting about for focus

unclarity serves survival anyway

arriving's such a delicate thing
a clear line of sight
from observing eyes might hook
and flip it all off track

to be whipped
into a froth of nothingness
down a swirling hole

[non-dream poem written in March 2014. I wrote this specifically in response to the prompt for a spring 2015 issue of WATERWAYS Magazine. It has been accepted for publication and is posted here today with the publisher's permission. Photo art "Down the Drain" (4-6-14 001v4) 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,
