TAILWIND (photo art) & REMEMBERED SKIES (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


in the remembered October skies
of childhood -- those endless skies
that yielded not a wisp of the future
their farthest edges brushed -- plane
after large passenger plane lines up
like migrating geese, their precise
twin lines shining in the sunlight
as they swoop off and vanish
into the distance, followed swiftly
by a rag-tag fleet of private planes
that adjust to form another wedge
in the spreading sky, mismatched
in size and shape they queue up
neatly, glimmering brightly
in the morning light as they too fly
out of sight trailing the commercial planes
like younger siblings, awe hangs behind
in the suddenly empty air prompting
the question: why this display of prowess
as if there'd been a homeland threat

[free verse poem on a dream of 6-13-14. Maybe it's just that yesterday was Friday the 13th? :-) Seriously, there's a lot in this layered dream/poem. Enough to keep me busy following down its clues later tonight when I have time. Photo art "Tailwind" (4-19-14 005v12) 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,
