WIND UMBRELLA (photo) & THE CHASE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


she starts to chase after the moral
of this dream tale about justifying the low rent
she paid in that old apartment all those years,
and of making an extensive complicated chart
to prove she'd not gotten away with anything

when a golden tree outside the window
usurps her focus to the shining filigree
it sketches and erases,
sketches and erases
under a wild burst
of morning wind

[free verse poem starting with a dream of 1-31-16. Photo "Wind Umbrella" (7-5-09 3212ev2) 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,
