HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW (photo) & THE HUNT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


what's with this egg? (an echo
of yesterday's dream poem image?)

and the burst of bright teal
on its side that sets me off on
a midnight search for where
it was laid, to find more of this
unique beauty

through a moonlit parking lot
surrounded by tall city buildings
that seem to lean in
and watch my wandering

like parents hovering at the edges
as their daughter toddles
through garden shadows hoping
to find more Easter eggs
to drop in her swaying,
already weighty basket

(always, always, this hunt for more)

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,
