ROSE CRADLE (photo) & A SNAP OF THE FINGERS (on a dream) by Roswila


my friend's puzzlement is no surprise
when I say I'm planning to have a baby,
that time passes so terribly fast
as we're getting older and older

for instance, should I have as much
as twenty years left, even that's
just a snap of the fingers,
and I never did have a child

but I am surprised she doesn't react
to my intent to respond
to that awful politician's advances,
a man neither of us can stomach

oh, there'll be a romance to get going
with him, if one can call it romance
with a narcissist, but that surely
won't last longer than a May fly,
nor do I want it to

what's important to me is the pregnancy
and birth, not the high of a romance
nor even the man

what matters is what's created
from what happens

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.
