SEEKING FOCUS (photomorph) & ON DUMPING (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


... searching for a way
to reorganize things ... hey,
this is getting to be too much
like my waking life

I get on with the sunny,
outdoors, acre spanning project,
even allowing myself to enjoy
the effort and consequent
aching joints, after all dreams
often bring something
new to the table

and this table's been moaning
under the load it bears,
stuff dumping more and more
onto the floor with each shift
of the towering layers of junk,
well, not all junk, not by far,
but certainly no longer needed,
if ever required or even useful at all

this discordant clutter I've feverishly
collected over the years, and endlessly
refined like some ersatz, post-modern,
performance art assemblage,
afraid to ignore, much less
leave behind anything

hm, so maybe that's not such a bad thing,
then, to let this free form dumping
have its head, so to speak, it's just
another way of reorganizing,
of letting go

[free verse poem on a dream of 3-24-16. Yes, this dream was mildly lucid (knowing one is dreaming as one is actually dreaming) at the beginning. Photomorph "Seeking Focus" (3-22-16 028v4) 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,
