RIDING ON THE TIDE (photomorph) & FROM A BALCONY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the surf-like sounds of rolling
tires on the street below engage her tired
focus as she closes her eyes to further
encourage the fantasy of a soothing
seaside sojourn after a busy day in
paradise building this necessary
sand castle called a life while
harboring a hot thirst for that
man who dangles before her mind's
eye like a juicy apple just
out of reach

[non-dream free verse poem written 4-8-16. The word paradise is meant in the usual way and also as a reference to a nickname for Santa Barbara County, CA (where I live). Photomorph "Riding on the Tide" (3-3-16 002v10f) 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,
