UNDER THE BED (photomorph) & NEVERTHELESS (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


why am I checking
under my bed, like a child
afraid of the dark?
omigosh, a baby horse
barely the size of my hand

so young that standing
is still a bit of a problem
first I steady it,
then I pick it up carefully
so as not to frighten it

I'm concerned about
its health for it appears
weak and way too pale,
and wonder why its mother
abandoned it under my bed

what do I know about caring for baby horses?
but nevertheless, it's now in my hands to deal with

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,
