CAPTAIN'S CHAIR (photo) & TIME WARP (dream writing) by Roswila


The Past:

Captain Kirk* fights with the strong,
determined woman to keep her
from wreaking world-wide havoc,
while another woman,
young and vague, watches
from the shadows

Kirk must not let her get
to the colorfully winking control panel,
but he fails when to his utter dismay
she twists around in his tight grip
and quickly slams down the fiery red
"Total World Destruct" button ...

Centuries in the Future:

this world of transporter beams
and instant cures, cities under the sea
and whizzing by in sky orbits has been destroyed
in internecine war, is there any coming back
from the ashes this time?

yes, there'd been a mass annihilation
once before in ancient times ...

The Present:

Captain Kirk fights ...

[written on a dream of 2-12-16. *Captain of the galaxy traveling Starship Enterprise in the T.V. show, Star Trek (Sept. 1966 to Dec. 1967). The "Classic" first series as it's now called, since there were several spin-offs. The one that is still my favorite after all these years. I dream about Captain Kirk or the actor who played him every so often. Photo "Captain's Chair" (1-12-15 001v2) 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,
