HEART'S CRADLE (photomorph) & THE PUPPY (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


omigosh! a puppy,
a really young one, but I
certainly couldn't
tell by its size, it's bigger
than many an adult dog

it can barely keep
its round grey head steady
to look toward me
as I carefully pick it up
then cradle it against my chest

I have no milk to offer this sweet creature but
maybe it will be nurtured by my heartbeat

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,
