LEANING TO AQUA (photomorph) & INVISIBLE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


OK, another
of the questions my dreams
have been prompting:
why, pray tell, would I ever want
to make myself invisible?

when all too often
I already feel unnoticed
by a great many folk
yet, here I am showing her
how to become unseeable

and with great glee
as if it's something impressive
"Lookit! I just pull
this clear plastic string, fast
and hard, and voila! No me!"

I go on saying
that it does sometimes take
several attempts
before one's hand, then arms,
and so on, begin to fade away

and that for some reason, one's fingernails reappear first,
my shiny aqua nails coming back slowly, proving my point

but she's not at all impressed by my bid for attention,
by this attempt to be proud of not being seen

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.
