SHADOW WALK (photo) & A CLOSER WALK (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


arms around each other's waists
we step onto the outdoor path
and pause briefly, looking toward
the sun bright horizon

that's a more complicated move
than one might imagine
as we both have physical
infirmities that make any leaning
on the other a challenge

but we hold each other's bodies
in warm, firm grasps, wanting
to give this close walk together
a chance to go someplace new

we'll find a way to match
our steps, our heartbeats
have already synchronized

[free verse poem on a dream of 10-5-16. Photo "Shadow Walk" (6-2-14 005v2c) 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.
