CAN TWILIGHT BE FAR BEHIND? (photo) & PRAYER TO QUIETUDE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila
PRAYER TO QUIETUDE
please take me to the place from which you arise
on such shy wings I find that you've been waiting
here all along right behind me
let me be blanketed in you like a sated lover,
content to soak up naked silence
from every fold
and when you're gone, leaving me
exposed again to bedlam,
I'll not despair, for I know you'll always return,
like the embrace of this boundless

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.
