STUDY IN AQUAMARINE (photo) & A TRIO OF TROUBLING TIMES (on dreams) by Roswila


yelling "We're late, we're late!"
a male/female couple runs together
back into a pool in a thudding rush
down the diving board,
breaking its bright aqua back
(how will it ever be mended)

* * *

a blonde mother and grown daughter use
up the time they were allotted to perform
together in a show, then spend more time
together behind the scenes, the mother seems
content with this but not her eccentric child
(will they now split up)

* * *

a father arrives in time to visit with his teenage
daughter, as he puts his arm around her
she reminds him they've been told
they can't be nude together anymore
(oh, no, not another abuser!)

[on three separate dreams of 6-23-16. Yup, it was a very hard day yesterday once I left the haven of my rooms. That first dream seems to be very much about the present; the second and third, two different stages of my childhood. Those parenthetical phrases were what my dreaming mind thought as it observed. That is, I was not embodied, so to speak, in any of the dreams. But present only as what I call "observer I." Photo "Study in Aquamarine" (11-9-09 8083v4) 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.

until next time, keep dreaming,
