MAKING A POINT (photo art) & THE MESSAGE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


why's it always my fault
when I don't get a message?
are you even sure your office sent it?
did the P.O. deliver it elsewhere or lose it?
did someone steal it just for the fun
of with someone's head?

and those're only the first
of many disconnects I'm sure
I could imagine in this world
tangled in layer after layer
of communications
flying in cross currents
like swarms of bees

so, gimme me a break, already!

and now you say I'm to be summarily
deported to Australia because I didn't
respond to your message?
other than a pain in the butt to pack at once
how's that a negative consequence?

I've always wanted to go there

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,
