LOW FLYING DREAM (photomorph) & DREAM SEMAPHORE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


ah yes, that's it ...

he's wearing military fatigues
and standing at a distance
with his back to me,
moving minutely against a sky
that's saffron with dust,
an unreadable semaphore

and that's it ... the dream image
will not unfold or expand,
even here in the clear morning air,
but clings to sere brevity
in a gritty orange sky,
a cry choked off at its root

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-16-16. Photomorph ("Low Flying Dream" 8-23-11 111613v2) 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,
