REFLECTIONS IN A BLUE EYE (photomorph) & 'SPLAINING IT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


Lucy, of "I Love Lucy" T.V. fame,
sits in bed against the headboard
as I wander barefoot back and forth
on the carpeted floor by the foot

we continue our companionable
discussion of Ricky (who else,
but her husband in both life
and the show) and his present
whereabouts and projects

she interjects an agitated explanation
that comes out of nowhere (at least
to my perception) that I really need
to understand it was OK that he left
the show and their marriage, it'd been
a necessary move, best for them both,
and that she bears him no ill will

it's my turn to feel a bit agitated,
yes (I assert with far more calm
than I feel), I've always understood
that, adding quickly how I still
follow Ricky's career
and have you heard about
that new project of his

there's almost an audible "pop"
as the tension leaves the conversation

we're both smiling as she nods
and gives me her famous, blue eyed
"innocent" stare, quoting herself
in the show as she'd make fun
of Ricky's fractured English
"You want to 'splain it to me?"

[free verse poem on a dream of 3-22-16. Hm, maybe I'm watching too much T.V. (smile). This reflects the second night in a row that a dream has referenced a T.V. show. Of course, it could also be a metaphor for learning to put a bit more distance between myself and "the world." I.e., become more of an observer, and less the agitated "undergoer." I hasten to add that both recently dreamed about T.V. shows have always carried strong associations to my past (yesterday's to my young adult years, and this one to my childhood). However, both are also acutely about the present, as well.] Photomorph "Reflections In A Blue Eye" (3-3-16 002v11b) 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.
