DOOR ONTO WINTER (photo) & A DREAM LADEN WITH OLD THEMES (dream narrative) by Roswila


tired and sweaty after the long walk
to find the right back country road
she stands in front of the shower

she never did set a stumbling foot
on the path she so clearly recalls,
the one that would lead where
she's fairly certain she accidentally
left both her wallet and her
bamboo/flute-cum-walking stick

not a good day she mumbles to herself
and now she's going to have to shower
with someone else or stay dirty
and sweaty for who knows how long

she covers her embarrassment
with the joking proclamation "Strip tease!"
as she disrobes at the glass door
to the stall shower

the soapy wet woman inside looks
quickly away, honoring her masked
request for privacy

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,
