SINGING FOR THE MOON (photomorph) & MOON OF TWO SONGS (from a night's dreams) by Roswila


"If I could save time in a bottle..."*
plays like a soundtrack for her first
dreams of the night, the full moon's
light singing wordless backup
through the white lace curtains each
time she wakes to turn over and away
from her yearning "...The first thing
I'd like to do is to save every day
'til eternity passes away
just to spend them with you..."

why the change of tune in this night
of aching she doesn't know, but the music
behind the last dreams sings out of her
as the faintest blush of sunrise
colors the curtains: "Sweet Caroline...**
I know it's growing strong ...
I look at the night and it don't
seem so lonely...," a mix of scintillating
sweet and sorrow rising as it always
does with that old song,

"... Hurting runs off my shoulders
How can I hurt when I'm holding you"

[on the songs that ran through the dreams of 3-23-16. *Snatches of lyrics from song of the same title by Jim Croce, and ** ditto by Neil Diamond. When I say I hear and/or sing songs in dreams the actual dream experience is exactly that, as if I were hearing and/or singing. Photomorph "Singing for the Moon" (9-29-12 12166v3a) 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,
