BOILING OVER (photomorph) & THIRSTY (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


she goes to sleep in a welter of anger
of course she knows it's only an overwrought
cauldron filled with hurt, but this awareness
has never made any difference,
the anger just cooks on,
blistering her dreams as it had the day ...

this man's judgment, that woman's betrayal,
a parade of abandonments,
her own damning actions

so much burning ire makes her thirsty
she fills a tall glass with the last of the milk
in the refrigerator, but no, the boy
will have none in the morning
to go with his breakfast

she pours back all but a couple of swallows
surprised to be able to milk any kindness
at all from this burned out husk

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,
