HEART OF STONE (photo) & IMPRISONED (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


we're going to have to sneak someone
into this dark prison who can teach
just the right inmate how to operate on
our incarcerated leader to save his life

then when he's healed, we'll need
to carefully plan, then execute
a jail break for all of us in this motley
crew of offenders who were ripped
away from the light to endure
outrageously long sentences
in stone walled shadow

sometimes, one simply must
take the law into one's own hands
in order to live an authentic life

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.
