AT THE CORE (photo) & ON VICTORY (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


the army's triumphant:
each fighter returns to full size
before my eyes, protection
on the microcosmic level
no longer needed since
this far reaching victory

squadron after squadron returns
to human size again in a wink,
from nothing more than organized
dust mote dimensions

a party atmosphere pervades the massive
courtyard that stretches on into apparent
infinity on all sides and easily
accommodates all this popping
back to full size

I'm touched by the rising celebratory
mood all the way to my hidden
habitually doubting core

even if this wondrous scene recalls
the magnified view inside
a shaken snow globe,
joy still rides down the air,
glittering as it touches one and all,
briefly uniting the world

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,
