LEADEN HEART (photomorph) & TWISTED (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


omigosh, these are
notes she clearly doesn't want
anyone to read
I've done the same, keeping hidden
records of things so I won't forget

but I read them anyway, little guilty pangs
brushed off like so much dust on her binder

hm, she liked that workshop that I could not stand,
and from what she's written, others enjoyed it, too

not an unfamiliar situation for me ... maybe it is me
after all, some basic flaw in my way of perceiving

not a pleasant thought to wake to in a chilly morning,
the covers twisted like a lengthy impossible argument

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,
