BREAKING THROUGH TO THE LIGHT (photo) & ON THIN ICE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


trying to write about the dream,
in the dream, as it's being dreamed:
like attempting to be the car
and drive the car at the same time

'til at the last this image/thought
insinuates itself between the dream
about a costume party, and the writing
that tries yet again to unmask
the many revelers:

one cannot continue to drive across
thin ice without getting dunked

[free verse poem on a dream of 5-29-16. This is an example of a (semi-)lucid dream: knowing one is dreaming as one is actually dreaming. Photomorph "Breaking Through to the Light" (5-28-16 005v4a) 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,
