TEARS FROM TOMORROW (photomorph) & YOU'D THINK (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


you'd think her carefully silk screened sweatshirt
bore horrendous images the way folk
turn away from her

but it only conveys the many faces
of young children before they were abused,
unscarred, innocent faces all

yet one woman won't even let her join them
at the large dining room table,
objecting strenuously to "That sweatshirt!"

as if the silence of these lambs,
exposed en masse,
hurts her delicate ears

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-18-16. Photomorph "Tears From Tomorrow" (10-6-10 10026ev2) 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,
