STORM LIGHT (photomorph) & OF ROOTS AND RAIN (dream writing) by Roswila


As he holds the wooden panel away
from the hillside garden's extensive roots
he grouses, "I told you, here's the problem,
behind this new retaining wall."

Adding quickly that "Rain can't do much
to any further hurt, nor even help,
this already deeply troubled system.
It's not what falls or does not fall,
but walling off the roots."

Another male voice erupts in the winter air,
"Can you believe he's dismantling some of this
crucial storm preparation work!?" He leans
the large logs he'd been hauling against
a tree trunk, and brushes off his hands.
"There's no time for his know-it-all moralizing.
Not with the line up of huge storms
chomping at the bit off the coast.
We gotta prepare!"

The first man rolls his eyes in frustration at
this impassioned interruption of his own
honest, if sad, assessment of the day's
challenge, each man then returning
wordlessly to his separate work.

While leaves in the sprawling garden start
flipping in the rising morning wind,
nature's storm warning.

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.
