IN THE LIMELIGHT (photo art) & STRIP TEASE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


totally undress the dream
and what you end up
sitting still for
simply jiggles awkwardly
around the stage
in the harsh glare
of the footlights

but leave it draped delicately
in softly morphing images
and you may enjoy
a mesmerizing
dance of the seven veils

after all
the art of a strip
lies in the tease

[Free verse poem I started writing in a dream that was vaguely about writing about dreams, 5-30-14. Photo art "In the Limelight" (4-24-14 002v9) 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,
