EVOLUTION OF THE ROSE (photomorph) & THE KING TO HIS RELUCTANT MISTRESS (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


this is an arranged, even mandated marriage,
he proclaims, and you have no choice about it

also, don't get too attached to or fearful of
any ideas you may have of the responsibilities
of being Queen to my King of this realm

for this monarchy's modus operandi
is evolving rather rapidly
into a democracy

and definitely do not hold tight to any
understanding of how that new way
of operating will work

people under any system tend to focus
pretty much on the same things,
especially in their deepest selves

and your focus now must be
on bonding with me at last,
for once and for all

[free verse poem on a dream of 9-6-15. This is not the dream poem I mentioned yesterday that I was working on. That one is completed, but then I had the dream last night on which the above is based and felt more compelled to post the poem on it instead. (That other rather lengthy dream piece is called "Snowballs in Hell" and will go up here in the future.) Photomorph "Evolution of the Rose" (5-1-13 12632ev7) 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,
