DEWFALL (photomorph) & CHANGING (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


the question today?
why this on-going lack of recall
of the dreams sleep brings?
as I skim last night's skimpy images
I wonder what's been changing

true, it's not so much
no dreams, no, not that for sure,
bits always dangle
like fog patches caught in trees
by the sudden morning sunlight

but evaporate
as soon as I grasp after them,
no fruit in my fist,
at most a chilly unreflective
dew dampening my lined palms

last night's soggy remains raise memories of childhood,
a time when someone else made choices for me

like that permanent my mother gave my soft wavy hair
that did not take, what was already fine resisting change

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,
