THE LAUNCH (photomorph) & IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


"I'll be seeing you,"
I tell her, and she assumes
way too much from that,
as usual I'd been thinking
only metaphorically

and she, concretely,
believing I'd meant I'll be there
at the sunrise hour
of her long planned departure
to wave her off into the sky

but I won't let her
down now by not showing up
for one more good-bye,
though there's little time at all for
me to dress and go the distance

in the overall scheme of things, it's really not much to
do for a dear friend, even if based in misunderstanding

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,
