MORE SPACE FOR THE LIGHT (photo) & GIFT HORSES (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


today's dream question:
dare I trust all they're doing
to give me some space?
no doubt it's really going on,
but what are their motives

I can see the wet
carpet where he showered
on the stair landing
to respect my need for ready
access to the bathroom

and these newly washed
colorful linens she left for me
when she moved out
of my bedroom to stay
way down at the long hall's end

all of this and more
they've done to accommodate
my expressed wish
for more space, while being sensitive
to my unspoken need for privacy

why worry what motivations they might be hiding?
after all, one shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth

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.
