A SPIN OF FORTUNE (photomorph) & AT THE CARNIVAL (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


two doors opening at the same time
yards away from you onto who-knows-what,
the only thing that's clear: you must
use one to get anywhere at all

and somehow you sense neither door's wrong
or even better but just quite different,
each opening onto a path that meets a compelling
need of yours that's distinct from the other

there's no way or time to make a reasoned choice
you step forward and let momentum pick your course

[free verse poem on a dream of 12-28-15 (heavily edited & re-posted on 12-30-15, after posting in the earlier form on 12-29-15). Photomorph "A Spin of Fortune" (6-6-09 1910v3) by Roswila]

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,
