POOLING REFLECTIONS (photomorph) & LANGUAGE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the wind's calligraphy across the surface
of the pool holds no meaning, the tongue
its written in foreign and delightfully so,
as I've swallowed many a belly full
of words, only to find they were meant
to control or hurt, or lobbed without a care

this total ignorance I feel watching
an unknown script ripple its sinuous
way over deep blue water's nothing
less than bliss, this languid language
promising nothing at all,
and leaving nothing behind to clean up

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,
