HOVERING (photo) & THE GLASS CEILING (dream based free verse poem) by Roswila


the exact minute: 7:17 a.m.
and she's still hovering,
somehow she knows
she'll have to plummet
through that glass ceiling now
if she ever wants to release
the essential energies
of Soul, Force, and Ice
back into her life

without a second's pause,
she takes the plunge,
shards of glass flying around her
like rapidly cut diamonds
while she alights,
a dark and wingless
self-rescuing angel

[free verse poem based on a dream of 7-25-16. *An unacknowledged barrier to advancement. Photo "Hovering" (6-30-16 005v2) 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,
