SNUGGLING (photomorph) & WITHOUT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


... what was that dream?
distracted by a rush of chilly air
as I rise, I inadvertently
leave it wrapped
in the bed covers,
may it be comfortable
there, I think, as I become caught up
by the strands of a stray thought,
and make copious notes on how best
to lead a variety show audience
in writing a group poem,
no longer even noticing
the cold air

oh ho! I haven't thought about group poetry
in a couple of years, so it's a good guess
that the dream now snuggled warmly away
has something to do with this sudden re-interest

I'll bet it's wearing a little smile on its sleeping face
having done it's job without the toil of becoming conscious

[free verse poem inspired by a lost dream of 12-27-15. Photomorph "Snuggling" (12264v2b1) 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,
