STRATIFICATION (photomorph) & ONLY THREE OF THE MANY (about dreams) by Roswila


dream one:

I'm drawn to and a bit scared of that
male figure, he's both dangerous
and not, his ugliness rather beautiful --
metallic aqua lines wandering like an ancient
river over the almost skinless, softly blushing
landscape of his face and neck --
his presence abstracted but still managing
to telegraph a hard won self-acceptance

dream two:

and that woman's all too familiar,
demanding I find the proper addresses
for a huge list of organizations instantly,
yes, she's an Hispanic female Judge,
inundated with work, who refuses
to waver or slow fearing her failure
would let down all Hispanic women,
but all this does is force others to fail her
such as I, who cannot move any faster
given the realities of the physical world

dream three:

each scenario in turn begins to open like a living
nested doll, just a hesitant peek inside
making me dizzy as I realize how much
aliveness it contains, what further
colors and shapes anxiously line up,
awaiting their turns to speak

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,
