FROM THE HEART (photo) & THE FRUITS OF LOVE (on a dream) by Roswila


the mother reluctantly begins a search
through a magazine for a love card
that will meet her teenage daughter's
request for one to give to her new boyfriend,
the mother explaining it's very hard for her
to do this (physically, that is) to which
I respond "Let me help, I was just going
through this same magazine and there's
an index by subject at the back"

I run my forefinger down the lengthy
listing under "LOVE" and am quite
puzzled that though there are many (love
of country, platonic love, spiritual love,
love between siblings ...) none are really right
for her daughter's purpose, what's more they
all refer the reader to the same rather
cartoon-like, pale pink, heart-shaped card

well, I think, I suppose the daughter could
still use this card and make it more fitting
with what she writes to her boyfriend on it,
since nothing's perfect in this life anyway,
not even the efforts or fruits of love

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,
