INCUBATION (photo art) & THE GIVER (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


he sits by his basket of jelly beans
like a mother hen by her eggs
but gives his away
one sweet dollop at a time

at first he seems genuine
in his gifting, his smile
as bright as any of his beans
but, look again,
note that wrinkle, that tiny
shadow of a downturn
at each corner of his mouth?

a thank you will never suffice
and his mind requires reading,
for payment must match
his tight lipped expectation

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,
