IN A FLASH (photo) & THIS VESSEL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila
the frailness of this vessel,
the symbol, that cannot retain
what runs through it like water
yet holds the unholdable
long enough, and just so long,
to illumine the dark
like a lightning-lit hillside
bearing the first diamonds of winter

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.
