CANDLE (photo) & CONUNDRUM OF THE CANDLE (non-dream poem) by Roswila


how to snuff out
one's blistering suffering
but retain
the guiding light of caring

[non-dream poem written 10-8-16. No great shakes, this little poem (not even sure I've made my point clear). But I have very little dream recall from last night. And none of those fragments are compelling me to write about them. So, instead of posting a repeat, here's a decidedly "so-so" new piece I wasn't even sure I'd keep. However, I do really like the old photo of mine I've posted with it. Maybe that'll balance things out a bit. :-) Photo "Candle" (5-18-11 11001ev2) 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), 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.
