EXPECTANT SHADOWS (photo) & HILLARY'S A HILL (dream narrative) by Roswila


Hillary's a hill all by herself:
hugely pregnant and seemingly
going into labor; her husband panics,
which she finds amusing,
especially as her contractions
turn out to be Braxton-Hicks;**
she leaves him in the reception area
while she ambles placidly around
the large office of a business
owned and run by two women;
when she goes into labor for real,
her husband manages, albeit
with great effort, not to panic this time;
Hil waddles off to tell the female bosses
that she's in labor and has a bit
of a time getting their attention;
their attitude appearing to be that
whatever is going on, Hil will
handle it, doesn't she always?

[narrative on a dream of 7-28-16. I'd listened to *HilLary Clinton's nomination acceptance speech at the DNC only hours before dreaming this. **Also known as false labor. I couldn't find a viable way to weave in lyrics for the song that I was "singing," here and there, throughout this dream: "All of Me." Photo "Expectant Shadows" (10-24-09 7948v2) 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,
