EXPLOSION OF COLOR (photomorph) & STUMBLING AROUND (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


yes, yes, that magic circle you cast
still stands in your inner world,
maintaining a safe space
and, yes, many years of hard work
have been done in its gently lapping
harbor waters, loading
and unloading cargo
from both near and far

but now it's time to cast another
circle, at the heart of this first,
in which to do the hardest work,
a deeper, safer haven
in which there's refuge
even from one's self

from those ancient fragments that lie
buried like munitions lobbed about
centuries ago in a war neither
lost nor won, that still explode
when stumbled upon

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,
