THE SEARCH FOR EMBRACE (photo) & WHY (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


why this extremely attractive
former soap star -- now famous
for a gory criminal show --
and his unclear intentions?

yet here we stand embracing,
both of us barely breathing, nothing
said by either of us, and nothing
needing saying, at least that's
the intuitive prompting I get
since I have a slew of questions
I'd ask if I weren't now afraid
to break whatever this spell is

but I can't leave well enough alone
and whisper "This is nice..."
and to my relief, without moving
a fraction of an inch he responds
"Yes, isn't it..."

then I realize I'm very late for lunch
with a dear friend and step back
oh-so-reluctantly to explain

as I do so, a strong tangible pull
rises between us, coming
from us both: our connection
concretized as if we were super magnets

the tug trails along with me as I hurry
to meet my friend, and wonder
how far I need go before it breaks

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,
