ENDLESS SNARL (photomorph) & EVEN HEARTS CAN BE TAUGHT (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


oy! how to recount
this dream, in any form at all --
the layers go on
and on, alternating question
then answer, then question

do I go into
the dream's actual images:
letting immigrants
stay in our home so they can
find gainful employment

and the ensuing
endless argumentation by
three generations
of folk, about why they made
certain major decisions themselves

all seems feasible
and all seems to be equally
conscious or unconscious,
faked or deluded or on the mark

and each one of these folk oblivious
to their own spiraling layers

their responses ingrained like old record grooves
the crack of the inculcating whip long forgotten

the word compassion rises: the ultimate answer

but even hearts can be taught varying values
the problem, it seems: teachers that differ

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,
