THE GOLDEN BOUGHS (photomorph) & A CHANGE OF VENUE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


he gathers me up
(literally) in his long strong arms,
sensing I'd welcome it,
the white in his blonde hair
glittering under the ceiling lights

although we'd agreed
to meet here he's changing venue
to his upper crust home
where he drops me (figuratively
speaking) at his door and rushes off

but not 'til commending
me to his younger sister's care,
explaining he has
an unexpected and vital appointment
and will be back as soon as possible

his sister's a small blonde beauty,
well-educated and very classy

although I feel a bit intimidated, she's really rather
welcoming as she shows me around the building

I try to pay close attention to her but find my mind
wandering back to images of her handsome brother,

to hopes for what very well might transpire between
he and me once we are alone behind closed doors

she smiles lightly in a knowing way when I stumble
distractedly over an answer to one of her acute questions

I blush as I smile back, and think: of course,
strong intuition does tend to run in families,

and I start to relax, as she must also sense
that I do genuinely care for him

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.
