NIGHT STRUTS (photo) & BUILDING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


first just an empty
basement hole, a question
in the ground, nothing visible
yet to the naked eye

then pulse pounding as dark
columns rise, rooted
in the emptiness, an eerie
affront to the watcher,
black against the distant foothills
and pale blue sky,
a skeleton that will support
an expansive space
for other pursuits

yes, always this necessary darkness
beneath, its feet in the unknown

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,
