DESIRE'S CUP (photomorph) & THIS DESIRE (free verse poem) by Roswila


"Basta!!" as it's said in Italian, or better,
"Enough already!!" as my New York City
friends of years past would say

No more dreams that poke rudely
into the bottomless well of my desire,
scraping up images for the pain
I already get all too clearly, and don't
need or want impressively dressed up
only to meet an oblivious day

where's the openness, the sense
that nothing's set in stone,
no concrete memorial's yet erected
over this sleep twisting,
day dizzying desire in all its
labyrinthine layers

to put it more succinctly
and make an end to this rant,
where has simply accepting
not knowing gone?
the way of the dodo bird?
extincted each time I try to figure out
what's coming, instead of waiting for it?

[free verse poem, non-dream though partly in reaction to the focus of many recent dreams. That question in the last two lines is derived from a bit of T.V. show dialogue: "Stop trying to figure out what's coming, and wait for it!" Photomorph "Desire's Cup" (4-9-12 11648v2) 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,
