THE HEART OF UNCERTAINTY (photo art) & THE TIN WOMAN SPEAKS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the distance between a star
so new and far away its light
has not yet reached the earth
is no greater than that
which glitters between you and me
the former will require miracles
of technology to cross it
and though my shyness grasps
at mind games to tool a path
from me to you
I fear this latter distance
only asks for heart to bridge it

[non-dream free verse poem written in April of 1993 and revised most recently a few days ago; it appeared here in 2007 in an earlier version. I was reminded of this old poem when a poet friend said she felt like the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz. She's going through all the endless diagnosis, other opinions, and such, for a possible heart procedure. Photo art "The Heart of Uncertainty" (4-6-14 002v6) 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.
