DESERT FOSSIL (photomorph) & A NIGHT IN THE HEAT WAVE (free verse poem) by Roswila


all the night's dreams
steam ironed flat
and lifeless by
my over-heated body

wisps of already
ghost-like images
evaporating in
the heated discomfort

I wish I could say
that I'm now
wrinkle free

but this aged body
bears each twist
and turn carved by time

like the bed of a long dry
ancient river at the edge
of flooding the sea
with its emptiness

[free verse poem on losing all the dreams of 9-9-15, though I knew I was having lots of dreams each of the many times I woke. Photomorph "Desert Fossil" (7-11-13 005v8) 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,
