A SKETCHY SITUATION (photomorph) & IF IT ISN'T YOU (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


if it isn't you
it will be someone
who'll engage my intensity
with his own, drawn into
my orbit by the gravitational
pull of my passion

if it isn't you
it will be someone
and so I refuse to dampen
this burning with disappointment,
I shine on and brightly for he
who will not fear my flame

for if it isn't you
it will be someone
who will bathe with me in this fire,
this ferment that draws life forward,
so take what I say seriously
if you should want me at all:

there's little time left to go on
titillating from a distance
like those famous ships passing
in the night, your hail no more
than a quick flash

so strap on a pair and step up
to the plate, for if it isn't you
it will be someone

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,
