DAYBREAK (photomorph) & REINS OF GOLD (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


what to do with the only image
coming with me into morning:
the words "Reins of Gold"
that somehow I know should be
title case to carry them

but pray tell just what significance
do they guide me toward
and more importantly
which of the capitalized words
bears the greater weight

that which directs and at times contains
or that which beams diffusely
like the sun of spirit

or are they truly one and the same
as they rest against my analytical
thoughts urging me to go
in the opposite direction
with their shining touch

[free verse poem on a dream of 2-11-15. BTW, neck reining a horse is what I'm hinting at in that last stanza. In neck reining, if the reins are laid against the left side of the horse's neck, the horse goes to the right while also looking to the right. Photomorph "Daybreak" (2-7-15 019v12a) 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,
