HANGING UP HIS WINGS (photomorph) & GETTING THE POINT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


so that's it!
just more yearning for not only
acknowledgement, but appreciation

no matter how artfully the dream
dresses it all up, that's nothing new
under the hot sun of her neediness

all decoration and obfuscation
melting away, like Icarus's wings

leaving her with the naked
hollow shafts of her deepest truth:

she cannot fly unless she feels safe

she cannot feel safe abandoned
and ignored in a corner

[free verse poem on a dream of 8-24-15. Photomorph "Hanging Up His Wings" (4-21-15 004v3y) 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,
