PRAYERFUL (photo) & WHERE THERE'S A WILL (dream narrative) by Roswila


the memorial gathering has an air of celebration
and deservedly so, as the deceased gave all of us
much to delight in that we will always have

a dear woman friend of mine wanted very much
to attend but is being stalked by dangerous folk
who will also be coming, and she feels
she probably shouldn't risk it

I watch as person after person arrives,
wondering which of them is a stalker,
then I see a familiar looking man entering

he's pudgy with short light brown
almost blonde hair, and wears a wrinkled,
ill-fitting tan suit

then it hits me! it's my woman friend in disguise,
minutely flashing a secret smile only
I would ever note much less recognize

I should have realized she would find a way
to honor what matters so much to her

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.
