VITELLUS (photomorph) & SILLY GOOSE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


what a silly goose!
she thinks I'm laughing at her
when as I told her I'm enjoying
her resemblance to a teal butterfly
in that new dress

and I keep reassuring her that I'll
keep the secret that she's incubating
a child (good news as her other child
was a sunny delight to all as she grew)
in a shiny, chicken sized egg,
here, in the home
we've shared for ages
despite our incompatibility

ah well, there's no changing
some people's minds: they will believe
what they will believe
and I need to attend to my breakfast

even as I cut a hard boiled egg
in half I realize with a gasp
what I've done: it's her egg!

and there's nothing I can do now
but decide whether to own
up to this act of mine
or hide the evidence

in any case, it's been like letting
that goose in the fable live on,
and killing her golden egg

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-28-16. I feel forewarned I'm about to do something self-destructive. Like watching a train wreck just about to happen and feeling hopeless to stop it. Sigh. (BTW, I do know what it's about.) Photomorph "Vitellus" (7-9-09 3579v6) 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,
