WAITING FOR RAIN (photomorph) & IN A RATHER DRY TIME (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


dreams fall through the night
into my sleep less and less
these days, well, actually it's recall
that's missing not the dreams, but
either way dreams don't come with me
into waking very often right now,
which would be nothing worrisome
were not droughts of all kinds around,
the least rain shower a matter
of conversation and even a bit
of celebration at the dinner table,
and my long starved body in imminent
danger of falling into a wilted,
whimpering heap
at the feet of that juicy man

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,
