MORNING HAZE (photo) & PRAYER TO THE HAZE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


keep diffusing the light
that burns through to the core
and focus it some other day,
softening the world's sharp
edges 'til it's like a grey cat
whose golden eyes have closed
in repose, then allow this dream
of ease and beauty to enclose
like the whispery touch
of an old silk shirt

[non-dream free verse poem written 5-4-16. I actually have two dream poems from last night's dreams hanging fire. (Hope that indicates a turn around in my recent decreasing dream recall. I kept suggesting as I fell asleep that I would remember my dreams.) However, I'd already written this little poem and wanted to share it. Maybe I'm starting a series of "Prayer" poems (see "Prayer to the Sun" posted here a few days ago). Photo "Morning Haze" (11-11-10 10010e) 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,
