SHEPHERD'S STAR (photo art) & ANOTHER HUNGRY WOLF (prose dream poem) by Roswila


she offers me the binder of info
about a new approach, her gentle
enthusiasm and true belief
obvious to even a casual observer

there do appear to be new colors
shining out of this binder
and I am anxious to believe
that something fresh has landed
in my hands at last

as I leaf through the pages
in their clear plastic sheets,
the face of my inquiry
reflects in morphing shapes,
here and there on each page surface

but just as where I am reflects
on each successive sheet I view
so, too, the binder's linking
of new colors is intimately permeated
with the underlying shade of its
painfully familiar premise

I sadly and softly shut the binder,
all too certain now that this handful
is no more, no less
than another hungry wolf
in radiant sheep's clothing

[prose poem (or maybe a narrative?) on a dream of 7-5-14. As usual I hasten to add this has at least as much to do with my inner "selves" and beliefs, as with any external relationship. Though I have had a couple of blows to hopes about external ones recently. Photo art "Shepherd's Star" (4-24-13 12606e) 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.
