SHADES OF GRIEF (photomorph) & ON FAILURE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


something inside's died
but refuses to leave me be
lounging there as if in an ordinary
recliner seeking an ordinary
conversation however there's nothing
ordinary about this shade's disruption
of harsh grief with its seductive
fantasies of passion and pleasantries
triggering more hot salty tears
tears that burn into the open wound
of my failure to meet the needs I heard
crying from behind all the charm (and still
hear crying out unmuffled by death)
even as I tried

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,
