ROSE IN ABSENTIA (photomorph) & THE EMPTY DOORWAY (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


he knocked at the doorway
of yet another dream last night
and as always did not wait for me
to hobble to the door and open up
but walked quickly and silently away
how will I ever know what he has to say
if he won't take a stand? either at the door
of the unconscious or here in waking life
where his absence swirls in the air
whenever I answer what I take
to be his call

[free verse poem on a dream of 6-14-16. Photomorph "Rose In Absentia" (5-2-16 003v2i) by Roswila]

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.
