JACARANDA (photomorph) & THE JACARANDA (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


sadly, very few jacaranda blossoms
remain on the tree, but there's always
the memory of it in full bloom
the year before, its flowers crowding
the branches, the wind scattering
their overflow of violet gems
on the bright green lawn below

and if not this memory, then the expectation
of a full to bursting blooming and cascade
next year to capture imagination and camera

but why, when here these few precious
pockets of pale purple shine soundly out
of the darkly leafed branches like the faces
of dear friends at their windows watching
for a wanderer to come home
to the eternity of now

[non-dream free verse poem written 7-5-16. Photomorph "Jacaranda" (7-3-16 041v2a) by Roswila; from an old pic of mine of a jacaranda in bloom]

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,
