SO MANY CHAINS (photomorph) & IN THE BASEMENT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


how the blazes did she know that!?
"that" being which plug to pull
to stop all that incredibly noisy,
wobbling and shimmying machinery,
as it clunked and grumbled away
in this dreary basement?

all I saw, still see, is a maze of wires
looping back and forth over each other,
and across and beneath and snaking
from behind, every one of the boxy
whiz-bangs in this complex
(and probably totally unthought out)
array of endlessly busy machines

and why all this underground machination
anyway, what could it possibly have been
supporting above ground, since now
that she's pulled the plug nothing seems
to have changed (no cries of surprise
or despair trailing down the steep
basement stairs) except for this

[free verse poem on a dream of 3-9-16. LOL (a rather wry one at that), this is very much a wish fulfillment dream. And not for silence in the objective world. Photomorph "So Many Chains" (3-3-16 002v10a) 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,
