INTERPLAITING (photomorph) & TENDER SCULPTING (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


if my fingers and the palms
of my hands could
they'd be leaping with joy,
as it is they tingle and pulse gently
as if my heart has left its place
within my breast to caress
your dark hair this way,
the shape of your skull
steady beneath my stroking,
but your hair,
how profoundly intimate
to feel it's wandering
independent strands almost anticipating
my touch, lying down over and over,
allowing for this tender sculpting
of an opening onto love

[free verse poem on a dream of 10-4-16. Photomorph "Interplaiting" (9-15-16 013v2a) 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.

until next time, keep dreaming,
