WATCHING HER STEP (photomorph) & BEYOND FRESH (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


all of the tall, narrow panels
of mixed media art
have been judged losers,

now, just in terms of numbers,
how can this be?
accident alone should give
at least one of the many dozens
of hanging tapestries a win
(or show, or place... or even
an honorable mention...)

much less when one considers
that nothing even vaguely like
this endless coruscating display
of collage/painting/poetry-in-motion/
has ever hit the art scene before

it's clearly time for those who
would judge to peel away the veils
of aesthetics and assumptions
clinging to their eyes
like cataracts

something beyond fresh
(smell the paint? it's not even
dry yet!) is in town ...

(is always in town)

[free verse poem on a dream of 1-29-16. This is less about art (though that subject is obviously included) than about life as a whole. And specifically (do I really need to state it?) how I need to look at things much more often. Photomorph "Watching Her Step" (12119v3d) 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,
