RED RAMPANT (photomorph) & ON BEING FRAMED (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


each Knight -- male
and female alike -- stands
awkwardly posed in a thick
brown wooden frame, a living
breathing portrait

each also wears bright red
chain mail, contrasting sharply
to his or her unhelmeted head
of wild white hair

the picture frames along the
wall begin to look more
like a row of dog houses,
each Knight peering perplexed
out of its own doorway,
a mutt muffled by an intricate red
sweater crocheted by an owner

puzzling over these hung up Knights
the observer wonders
how she herself is framed

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-1-15. Photomorph "Red Rampant" (10-26-12 12223ev11a) 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,
