FALLING APART (photomorph) & A GREATER GRACE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


inch by fraction of agonizing inch
you slip from my grasp toward the maw
whirling wider and wider inside you

and I don't even know if you've ever
returned my well-meaning grip
from beneath the layers of stories
with which you seek to mask
the depths of your pain, or
if this hold I struggle more
and more to maintain has always
come from me alone

and not to put too fine a point
on it all, maybe it would be
a greater grace
if I were simply
to let go

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,
