THE DAY ROLLS ON (photo) & HANDWRITING (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


last night I dreamed
I saw your handwriting for the first time

your commitment to a date with me
riding the crest of the curves and awkward
angles like a surfer striking the necessary balance

this physicality from you that you'd taken time
and effort to produce and send directly
made me cry for I've long yearned
for a tangible effort on your part
even if it meant fighting the tumultuous
radiating currents of both our lives
to get your message through

maybe it was too much to want from a battle
weary knight who lost his charger
in the last big storm

but how else was I to know you are finally
allowing yourself to want me?

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,
