IGNITION (photomorph) & COMBUSTION (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


she says I should smell
her baby's breath, it's always the odor
of high octane fuel
I agree and now understand why
he races so through everything he does

and why the occasional explosion
when she tries to muffle his nature

but a racer, is a racer, maybe she'd do better
to find a way to enjoy riding along with him

rather than try to put out the combustion
that drives his changing body and inventive mind

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.
