ROUNDING IT OUT (photomorph) & ROUND HEELS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


I've heard the expression "round heels" used
for a female who's a certain kind of pushover (ahem)

and though I've not heard this old term applied
to a man, slanted differently it fits you all too well

for each time you rock back on your heels away
from me in haste to beat a retreat I just don't get,

your heels smooth a bit rounder, making your next
rock-away from me all the more likely and quick

leaving me to stand disappointed, the rise of hope
at meeting up with you, slowly making its own retreat

[non-dream free verse poem written 4-5-16. Photomorph "Rounding It Out" (8-14-13 015v8b) 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,
