MIDNIGHT SEMAPHORE (photo) & THERE YOU ARE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


so, there you are
at a distance as always
and expecting me
not only to see but to comprehend
what you're communicating

I guess it's my fault
for asking my dreams for help,
for daring to want
clarification so that I can move
either toward or away from you

but all I get is
more layered semaphore
that I cannot read,
your hands waving in the air
like a conductor's sans orchestra

flooding me with the memory
of yet another sad old song

as I struggle to do my best to respond
to what I don't understand

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,
