MIRAGE (photomorph) & NEVER THE TWAIN (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


... and never the twain shall meet,
this wannabe Ado Annie,*
and the morphing mirage:

she only craving to say yes
again and again to him,
and he, whichever intriguing
male has stepped to the fore,
wavering before her eyes
then vanishing from her grasp
like fog when she reaches
yet one more time
after what she'd dared to hope
against hope was real

[non-dream free verse poem written 7-20-16. *The character who sings "I'm Just A Girl Who Can't Say No" (from the musical Oklahoma). Photomorph "Mirage" (7-18-16 002v4) 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,
