HIVE DANCE (photomorph) & EYES SHUT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


the world around without sight muting
its profusion: more alive than a hive of bees,
with a sweet aromatic sting and abuzz
with mysterious purpose, while she,
the lazy queen bee in the center of it all,
not quite napping, nor quite awake,
opens wider and wider to a dream of a huge
honey pot, hers only for the asking
to dive into and let her tattered iridescent
wings for once stay softly furled against
her achingly proud back, soothed at last
by this silken slide into a golden pot of honey

[free verse poem based on a 7-6-16 dream during a doze I slipped into as I sat overlooking our community's pool on a gorgeous sunny afternoon. Photomorph "Hive Dance" (7-6-09 3376ev6) 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,
