LISTEN UP! (photo) & COMMON GROUND (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


I keep trying to help my former roommate
find the recently laid down flooring
in her home ... unfortunately,
we're talking on the phone and she
tends not to visualize very well

so for all my carefully constructed
descriptions, employing various metaphors
and shared memories, she can't find the new floor

yet I can see it clearly in my mind's eye
from where I sit in front of my T.V.
and across the continent from her,
its vast expanse shining a golden brown,
its parquet pattern unique,
more like flickering patches
of garden shadows and light,
a new and common ground
on which to stand

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,
