THE CROWN OF THE KING (photomorph) & THE STACK OF CARDS (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


ah, yes! all four Kings
neatly lined up and spaced
across the table,
when a Queen shows up right after
she thinks: too soon, way too soon

the Kings should simmer
alone for a while longer,
time is not yet ripe
to seek more clarity and order
despite inevitable chaos

she stops her turning
over of cards and resumes
unfocused musing,
the stack of cards heating
slowly in her open palm

as her fingers itch mightily to flip cards,
she begins to laugh at this illusion of control

for wait or jump right back in, she cannot know
how it will all work out until the last card's played

[three tanka capped by two two-liners on a dream of 9-14-15. Photomorph "The Crown of the King" (9-23-12 12150v7b) 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,
