HANGING AROUND (photo) & WAKE UP (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


what's that pulling my leg
from the end of the bed

did a neighbor's dog or cat get in
while I've been asleep?

I might think it
a silly dream metaphor about not
taking people so seriously
only it's too real
and somewhat scary

and I can't seem to shake it off
my foot or get bothered enough
to wake up thoroughly
and check it out, as I lie here
wiggling whatever's dangling
heavily from the end of my leg
and anxiously await the return
of deep sleep

so, that's another possible
dream metaphor:
wake up
or suffer the consequences

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,
