THAT'S THE BREAKS (photo) & PRAYER TO CHANGES (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


flashing an occasional array
of white diamonds across
their curving backs
the waves roll ceaselessly
each unfolding uniquely
from a distant ripple
into an intimate break

may these sporadic gems
and unpredictable breaks
never come to an end

for without them
what would life be
but a suspension
in emptiness

[non-dream free verse poem written 8-16-16. This is the 13th in a "Prayer to..." series I've written and posted here. Photo "That's the Breaks" 8-23-16 001) 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,
