LIGHT MOVES (photo) & MAKING A MOVE (dream narrative) by Roswila


this former soap opera star always
attracted me, but the characters
he played? not so much ... however,
what does his professional resume
have to do with what's going on
now between us? this steamy
yet comfortable connection?

then I think I hear him say he's moving
to North Carolina but as soon as I mumble
"oh no, just my luck" he repeats
his comment and I hear that he's actually
going to the north side of our town,
to which he adds to my surprise
that he wants me to leave with him

as we pack and start the move on foot,
we're accompanied by a small male
acquaintance of ours who although he's
no help with carting things, brings much
energy to our endeavor just with his
bouncy attitude

as we three enter a restaurant from its alley
doorway, I turn to the small man whom I now
recall knowing when I lived in New York City,
asking him how his mobster cousin is

although I'd hesitated to inquire after his somewhat
dangerous cousin, it seemed better to speak of him,
that shining even a brief light on darkness
increases a sense of safety

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.
