SUNFALL (photomorph) & NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


it's been a lovely afternoon at seaside, even though
I'd managed to get lost on the long wide boardwalk
I'd also somehow managed to make a new young
friend who's guided me back to where I'd started,
the westering sun at our backs the whole way

she introduces me to a friend of hers, with whom
I sit and chat in the boardwalk café/emporium
(that I'd despaired of ever making my way to again)
we have a great deal in common but more important
she seems welcoming and non-judgmental
(while in a hidden corner of my attention a fear
quivers quietly, waiting for an inevitable sense
of disconnect to come from her)

she invites me to join her and other friends,
who've been slowly gathering near us, for a movie,
I say I can't (hoping my nose won't start growing
but I'm way past overload with all this bright shiny
newness and youth) and ask instead if they'd like
to come to the retirement party I'm throwing
on Saturday (thinking the couple of days
until then will settle me down)

she expresses immediate delight, as does
the tallest and cutest of the young men in their group,
his head coming up at the word "party," his long
ash brown hair falling over one eye while he
flashes a mega-watt smile and straightens
his plaid clad shoulders, as if he now stands revved
up and ready to pilfer someone's heart

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,
