STILL SEEKING THE LIGHT (photo) & THE TURNING (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


he gives us a heads-up
that it will be a difficult
turn to make, to get
this long trailer house
into the tunnel
but that he's done it before

as the word "before" leaves
his mouth we feel a mild thud
at the front with no scraping
and then at the back end

as he straightens the house-
on-wheels we can see far
ahead toward where this tunnel
will ultimately issue us

a light shining there in the distance
like a golden white period
at the end of a run-on sentence

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.
