BURGHAL PYRAMID (photo) & THE PYRAMID SCHEME (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


go figure! she's actually bought into
a magazine subscription pyramid scheme,
albeit a new one started by a man
she respects who's highly intelligent,
and his partner (and wife) is that famous
pop singer whose songs she so likes

they're both very thorough and concerned
that as a new member she have all
the necessary support (and then some),
even providing info on virus protection
for her computer (like just about every-
thing else these days, most of the business
involved resides on the internet)

she'd known the man would make something
of himself when she first met him,
years ago, recalling how he'd been
developing this business plan
way back then, constructing it
despite few resources,

as if in the middle of a desert,
through which he'd haul the carved blocks
of granite determination,
fitting them creatively
and tightly together,

clearly a pyramid that would come
through any invasion or dust storm
to stand taller and shine all the brighter

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.
