LOVE KNOT (photo) & AND THOUGH WE NEVER MEET (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


We have not met
And yet some part of me
Has held your shape:
An empty doorway fills
With your familiar posture
Limned with light only
To dissolve into a stranger

I have never heard your voice
And still a laughter lifts
With promise, but leaves
A passing sadness
That it is not yours

We have not touched
Yet my soul will leap to meet
The suddenness of hope
Held out in a hand
Whose touch reveals
It is not you

I do not fault the ones
Who are not you,
For each has given me
A taste of your sweet absence

And though we never meet
Some part of me has held,
And holding true,
Will love you even then

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,
