A WISH FOR WINGS (photo) & THE REQUEST (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


a female vampire
fills out a request form in the store:
"Why not give a class
on the mutated fruits and veggies
the younger folk eat these days,

as we old folk, vampires and normal people alike,
have no idea of their names or how to prepare them."

then she picks up her
fanged lover, putting him on her back
beneath her burgundy
velvet cape, and skims down the stairs
to the street (vampires fly, of course)

leaving the worker
who accepted her completed request
looking very puzzled:
why would a vampire care about fruit
and veggies of any kind, that normals eat?

hm, he wonders, maybe in these frightening
times even vampires hunger to be helpful

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,
