TIME'S IMPRINT (photomorph) & THE NEWBIE DOCENT'S FIRST DAY (dream narrative) by Roswila


one --

she's excited to learn
they've found a striking way to display
that unknown artist's construction project;
not as the medieval castle
she'd seen in its profusion
of small pieces, but as an ancient
Chinese village with its vine
covered water tower:
"One can always look at things
some other way"

two --

even that old boss of hers
who treated her so shabbily deserves
to have his work up here, she supposes,
so she'll send him an email and let
him know his intriguing drawings
are up in a special exhibit:
"Give credit where credit is due"

three --

... and where are those abstract paintings
she took such care with as she helped
carefully arrange them, you know,
those by her friends? well, the walls are bare
now where they were; ah, she recalls,
that's right, they were never intended to be
part of this museum's permanent collection,
even "permanent'" being a misnomer:
"Everything changes"

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,
