WANNABE RAINBOWS (photomorph) & A SILVERY THREAD (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


that look on my deceased brother's face?
priceless! he clearly thinks I won't be able
to play the musical wind instrument
he's handing me since he couldn't,
yet he doesn't want me to know
that to his mind his challenge
has a foregone conclusion

well, old windbag that I am,
and to his dropped jaw surprise,
I immediately get a musical note
from this odd instrument,
and then another and another
until a rainbow of tones
flies in the air above our heads

and above them all a tune emerges,
the harmonic line, bright and slim,
a silvery thread winding 'round
and 'round us

until I wake up singing
Bless my homeland forever..."*

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-15-16. *Last lines to the song "Edelweiss," from The Sound of Music. Photomorph "Wannabe Rainbows" (11-24-15 0p53vk) 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,
