SHOULD WE JUMP? (photo) & WHICH IS IT... (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


a seagull at roof's edge above
the morning ocean, at home
in either direction forward

or a rolling fragility, like an egg
caught for a breath and teetering
at the brink of a terrible plummet

[non-dream free verse poem written 4-20-16. It's been a rough morning and as I turned on my computer the image of that seagull flashed into my mind's eye (it's an old photo of mine) in contrast to a teetering feeling. And after drafting this I wonder if it's even necessary to know which "it" is. Whatever it may be (and it may be something other even than these, of course) it's life. Something I'm finally, at this late stage, becoming deeply grateful for, even in all its anxiety provoking and gut wrenching moments. On another topic (though not at a deep level unrelated) I'm back into losing weight. This is the last leg of a 15 year long journey that I started at 356 pounds. As of this morning, I've lost 90 lbs. on this final stretch of the journey. The end of which will be a "normal" weight for the first time in well over 40 years. Photo "Should We Jump?"

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.
