NO WAY OUT (photo) & ON BEING A FOOL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


she keeps mumbling to herself
that there's no fool like an old fool,
the operative word in that sentence
locking her in as surely as a jail cell door
being the word "old," as she has no business
at this far end of life seeking that one great
love, in fact it's almost a crime against
common sense to entertain the fantasy

yet a thought keeps raising its small bright face
like one of those wild dandelions growing
from the cracks in the sidewalks along
the morning treks she makes to the sea:

how can it be too late for love,
or even too early, when love's
always right on time to turn
our faces to the sun

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,
