DIVING IN (photomorph) & OFF THE RAG (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


why don't either of us find this odd:
to be setting up a huge backup supply
of menstrual pads for the women
in our retirement community

and odder yet, that outside
the window, a 96 year old resident,
nearly full-term pregnant,
swims laps like a racer in our pool

well, I suppose fecundity bubbles
below the surface at every stage of life

the trick, then, not to ignore
creativity's flicker in the face
of late life changes and assumptions,
but to welcome and nourish
its tickling urge

[free verse poem on a dream of 10-20-15. BTW, this dream also has something to say about death, but I've chosen not to highlight that in this poem. Also, about late life changes. Photomorph "Diving In" (11-9-13 075v2) 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,
