RINGING IN THE LIGHT (photomorph) & PRAYER TO EMPTY MOMENTS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


do not let these lacunae in the hours
be filled by the fantasies tossing
in the crowded offing

let those yearnings float anchored
at a distance, booty waiting
for an unconscious pirate of dreams

leave these empty spaces unfilled,
like the bronze carapaces of bells
ringing their roundness
into the welcoming world

[non-dream free verse poem written 5-5-16. This is now the third in a series of "prayer" poems. And I have an idea for one on dreams percolating. Photomorph "Ringing in the Light" (4-21-16 003v4) 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,
