EL NIÑO DREAM #2 (photomorph) & EL NIÑO (free verse poem) by Roswila


the dream instantly
breaks into shards under
a second visit in two days
from the wild boy child

the bedclothes cocoon invitingly
but the day's imperatives
refuse to go back to sleep

opening curtains reveal
a nearly colorless
rain soaked street scene below

punctuated by the first sighting in ages
of an umbrella bobbing along
like a bright blue bird

[free verse poem about losing a dream in the morning of 1-6-16, and about the start of the El Niño season here in drought ridden CA. Photomorph "El Niño Dream #2" (11-24-15 049v3a) 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,
