SIDEWINDERS (photomorph) & WHAT HAPPENED (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


the winter wind whistles
and moans down through
the mountain canyons

he says when it stops, then
we'll be able to hear ourselves
think clearly enough to talk
about what happened

but his words echo as sadly
hollow as the wind
through Skull Rock
in that western movie
I saw as a child right after
Mama died,

that image that gave my grief
and emptiness the only
expression it found
in a vast desert

[free verse poem on a dream of 2-14-16. Photomorph "Sidewinders" (10-29-09 7924v6) by Roswila; best viewed in larger version because of detail, click on image if you're interested]

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,
