IF WISHES HAD WINGS (photomorph) & ONE BIG LOVE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


it's been said to be careful
what you wish for,
as you just might get it

well, she'd wished fervently through a long
life time for that one great romantic love
she'd read about in novels and poems,
and witnessed her friends experiencing

and, lo and behold, there at the far end
of her life with everything slowly
(and some of it not so slowly) breaking
down around her core of undiminished
yearning for that One Big Love before
she shuffled off this mortal coil,
she got her wish at last

only to find she'd left out
its most important aspect:
that it be requited

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), 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,
