RECUMBENT GANESH (photo) & NIGHT CLASS (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


we can share my slim twin
bed for the nonce, I say,
but let's get another bed for you
soon and place it like we used
to have yours years ago
when we were roommates

at an angle, but on the same side
of the room? she questions,
while I lie comfortably with her
warm against my back,

knowing that in some ways
she sees right through me,
even if she doesn't
realize it,

wondering to myself,
why I'm doing this
all over again, didn't I
learn enough the first time
around? but clearly not,

I add silently, or we'd
not be here and I'd not be
staying open to whatever
lesson surfaces
through my sleep
this time

[free verse poem based on a dream of 10-24-16. Photo "Recumbent Ganesh" (Ganesh folder 007v2) 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,
