CONVERSATION (photomorph) & CONVICTED (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


what's he guilty of,
he thinks, knowing only that
he's been convicted
well, at least he can graciously
serve out the sentence given

after all, he's not
totally housebound by it,
each morning he gets
to take a long walk on the pier
to report to his case manager

an elderly gal
who sometimes gets confused
and finds him scary
but her fugue passes quickly
and their talk turns to pleasantries

he'd always deeply yearned to live by the sea, so what's
a puzzling conviction compared to this wish granted

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,
