POOLSIDE REFLECTIONS (photomorph) & THOUGHTS ON A WINDY DAY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


palm frond shadows shift madly
across a corner by the pool, then over
the water, then back again

like thoughts running lose and wild
they thin, then gather in, they round
and curve, stretch wide for a flicker
then narrow once more in retreat

the rippling pool surface a contrasting
relief of pattern, cracks in the poolside
cement drawing threads of continuity
through the tapestry

as the shadow fronds erratically slip away,
slide back, curl, uncurl, contract, spread out,
knot up, but never quite grasp the pool's
corner from their fickle, mesmerizing
world of only two dimensions

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,
