LEFTOVERS (photomorph) & QUERULOUS (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


sigh, again nearly
zero dream recall, and that bit
that's shy of zero?
it's not like fairy dust for flying
just fine grit that can't be seen

how disappointing,
especially when she'd planted
a wish before sleep
("incubated" as they say)
for help with a quagmire mood

but no answer (though she's always had one before)
because there's no graspable dream symbol to carry it

yet, she thinks, it's not
as if it's someone else's mind doing
this stonewalling,
and at that, a question starts
droning on through the dream void

unwelcome like the endless dripping of a faucet:
what is it that she simply does not want to hear

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,
