BONES OF THE ROSE (photo art) & FOR A CHANGE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the taste of mouthwash fading,
the smell of books and old carpet
from the open library door behind,
a plane buzzing by like a bluebottle fly,
the sunlight warming exposed arms,
breezes puffing past without pattern
while a familiar step
(one two, one two) wanders by

how pleasant to allow
the gates of the eyes to draw shut

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,
