SUN STONE (photomorph) & GATHERING IN (dream inspired free verse poem) by Roswila


warming as always under the tutelage
of her bright smile I say "Yes, I agree,
teaching is where your heart clearly is"

our conversation winds down and I leave
the sun of her presence for poolside,
where I watch the surface of the water
rippling like laughter

I slip into a light doze in which I ask
the water where my own heart lives
"Hearts reconnect what perception
tears apart," it replies, "you live
to gather in the lost threads of metaphor"

a sudden breeze stirs me awake
and spins a large white rubber ball
across the surface of the water,
its shadow twin sliding smoothly
beneath it along the pool bottom
like a deep intuition

[free verse poem, inspired by a conversation and subsequent dream in an afternoon doze, written 5-12-16. Photomorph "Sun Stone" (3-28-16 001v2n) 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,
