DYING OF HUNGER (photomorph) & STARVED (free verse poem on a dream) by Roswila


it's no surprise she's starved
for touch, for being touched, that is

what drags her stomach suddenly down
as if she'd swallowed a lead sinker?

that she needs to touch even more,
the palms of her hands weeping

as she recalls the feel of stroking,
of giving while receiving

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,
