MEMORIES OF MIDNIGHT (photomorph) & AT LAST (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


like a succubus* propelled by the twin tortures
of long time famine and an object of intense desire,
I would swoop down on you through
this bright afternoon, a haunted huntress forced
out of her masking midnight element by hunger,
and have my way with you, our long limbs
tangled until I'm sated and at rest
in the open light of day,
nothing hidden or held back
between us
at last

[non-dream free verse poem written 7-13-16. *Succubus: a female demon believed to have sex with sleeping men. Photomorph "Memories of Midnight" (7-18-16 002v2b) 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,
