SHADOWS MAKE THEIR POINT (photo) & ULTIMATELY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


she often ultimately gets
what she most deeply
and persistently wishes for,
but not in a straightforward fashion,
nor in a timely way, nor even whole
or fully satisfying, rather,
what she's coveted for so long
takes its own sweet time to float in,
by then bloated and twisted
in ways she'd never have expected,
or the object of her desire
trails pointed, weighty problems
that pull on its tender skin
puncturing it till all the air
drains out of having gotten
what she wanted at last

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.
