INFLATED (photomorph) & ONE MIGHT THINK (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


... and so, after all the nearly unbearable
tension, like wading across a flooded
mine field, one might think that when
it ended again there'd have been
an horrendous bang

or at the very least a drawn out,
rather operatic whimper

but no, it was more as if the last
bit of air escaped the failed
attempt to pump it all up again,
in one tiny sigh of relief

a tepid raspberry

[free verse poem on a dream of 8-25-15. Photomorph "Inflated" (10-3-11 11324v11) 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,
