THE SOURCE OF ALL ASHES (photo) & THE BLAZE (non-dream poem) by Roswila


if I should be left
holding ashes and embers
I'll choose to remember
our dance in the fire

if I should be kissed
by a chilly wind only
I'll choose to remember
the heat of the flame

and if I should be brushed
by regret's long shadow
I'll choose to remember
the light of the blaze

[non-dream poem written 4-29-16 after hearing Paull Rubin ( perform his song "Ashes and Embers" in our retirement community's theatre. Photo "The Source of All Ashes" (4-13-13 12461v5) 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,
