TAPESTRY (photomorph) & ON THE BREATH OF A BREEZE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


he hangs in the air
like a tapestry, no, more like
one of those potholders
that as children we wove on little
metal looms out of stretchy
crayon colored bands,
but huge, the size
and shape of a door

I'd have expected this snobbish,
artistic man to weave something
much classier, well, maybe not
of museum quality like
one of those Medieval
wall hangings in which the unicorn's
captive to the maiden

nor anything as risky as post-
modern or performance art,
but certainly more artful
than this loose cross-
hatching of guileless colors
dangling in the air

oddly enough, I can almost remember him
fondly now, if this is how he's decided
to present himself to me this time around

I step up to the door shape as it waves
gently on the breath of a breeze

should I knock?

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.
