ROSE ARASBESQUE (photo) & THE REAL (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


a real rose, yes,
that's what it is: real
I keep finding that out
each time I touch it to make
another attempt at editing

neither it's shadows
nor shapes, nor red give way
under Photoshop
hm, there is that concept
called consensus reality

which would make this rose
a consensus of one
from its multitude of the possible

my perceptions and imaginings
just more ephemeral filters
like the morning light

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,
