Roswila's Dream & Poetry Realm

Mom? Dad? Oh...guess I'll
leave a message though I'd rather
talk to you both live ...
I'm bringing someone with me
to our monthly dinner tonight

I'm only giving
you this heads up because his
looks don't match his ways
you'll need to make sure your
open minds stay that way

let the reality
of his generous nature
dawn on you slowly,
as it did me, past his wild
hair and loopy dark mien

his kind heart's only revealed
through the actions he takes

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,
