BEYOND THE HALLWAY (photomorph) & A CONFLICT OF INTERESTS (on a dream) by Roswila


(♪ "Love look away ..." ♪)

there's dear Bill again, I haven't seen him
in quite a while and have really missed him

oops! he's looking this way and I'm not dressed
but dang it, I want him to see me anyway

(♪ "Love look away from me ..." ♪)

I'll just go on picking up after myself as if I
don't know he's there at the end of the hall

his appreciative glances feel good, reassuring
and warming like small fleeting caresses

(♪ "Love me and set me free, look away,
look away, look away from me" ♪)

[on a dream of 6-9-16. "Bill" was President Bill Clinton, who's not an uncommon visitor in my dreams, either as lover or friend. The lines in parentheses are from the song "Love Look Away," from the musical, Flower Drum Song. I'd been singing that song to myself yesterday (prompted by a letting go I'm struggling with), and wound up "singing" it all through my dreams last night. I was struck by the contrast between this particular dream and the dream singing. A clear expression of the sometimes opposing priorities that our conscious and unconscious minds can harbor.

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.
