UM, PARDON YOUR BOOTS! (photo) & THIS MAGICKAL GIFT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


my friend and I peer straight through the night
up the side of the old brick apartment building
following the excited pointing of neighbors
gathering on the sidewalk around us

I can barely believe my eyes,
the life-size roof top decoration of Santa,
sleigh, and his eight tiny reindeer
has taken off and is flying smoothly
around the glorious star-filled sky

ah, yes, I remember visits from joy,
this magical gift that like a brief uplifting
wind arrives of its own volition, in its own
time, and in its own way

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-23-15. This is that other dream I mention in the comments to yesterday's dream narrative post. An additional uplifting response to the previous night's request of my dreams for help. Photo "Um, Pardon Your Boots!" (12-28-14 002v2) by Roswila; the Santas around our grounds this season were many, and often in positions and places that I found humorous.]

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,
