SPINNING STRAW (photomorph) & THE STRAW MAN (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


and so the old fool realizes
she's been even more the fool
than she'd begun to believe:
he touches any woman
this way who will let him
and no matter how deeply
she insists her life be a fairy tale
in which wishes come true,
there's no way to spin
these bits of straw
into gold

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,
