BOWING TO THE MOON (photo) & THE LAGNIAPPE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila
Brad Pitt again!
at least this time we’re good friends
the circus tent snaps
in the night wind as he explains
why he has to leave briefly
his detective job
requires he take a button
from a prone man’s chest
I see him bending over
removing it carefully
the button glitters
like a medal – a lagniappe
from the full moon
[two tanka and a dreamku on a dream of 1-19-11, first posted in 2011. There's a full moon tomorrow and as often happens around this time I have rather vague dream recall from last night, so I'm putting this one up again. I stumbled across it looking for something else and am glad I did. I've always liked that ending image. And as often happens with the poems (or pix) I stumble across from years past, it has an eerie relevance to a current situation. Oy! I just remembered it's Father's Day which also newly informs this old dream today. Photo "Bowing to the Moon" (4-14-16 10507e2) by Roswila]
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.
