HUNGRY MOON (photomorph) & THAT BIG HOLE IN THE SKY (free verse poem) by Roswila


why do they call that big hole
in sky that keeps coming 'round,

does it swallow
everyone else's dreams, too
on the nights it rolls across
the dark, as it does mine
like some pale pac man

leaving nothing more
than ephemeral impressions
of the night's images,
footprints at tide's edge
that wash away
when the turning
laps over them

[free verse poem written 8-28-15, inspired by another night of little to no dream recall due to the full moon's imminence. A not uncommon experience of mine in the last couple of days just before the moon is completely full. Photomorph "Hungry Moon" (8-18-15 005v2a) 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,
