THE MOOD SPREADS (photomorph) & ANGST (on a dream) by Roswila


another dream in which a child's lost,
in this case taken by another woman,
and at least, this time, not my own child
but that of a woman friend who's anger
and frantic determination to get
him back from the thief's been defining
who she is and what she does for some time,
all while I do my best to make the move
from a small seaside town to my old
stomping grounds of New York City smooth
and inexpensive, even as I bear up under her
(certainly understandable) angst, and then I
realize I simply haven't got any energy
to make it to my job today, and it's getting
too late anyway (sigh), guess I'll just be
a no-show, again ... the more things change,
the more they stay the same

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,
