WHAT'S THE POINT (photo) & BUT TO DRINK (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


true, I always knew it was there
why else would a hummingbird
dip its long beak into the bright sharpness
of a bird of paradise but to drink

however, today, as I bumble along
with my wheeled walker and pause
by a bush of these blossoms,
for the first time I actually
see in one its clear sap
shining with white gems
beneath the sun's hot regard

that scintillating sweetness at the heart
existing only to be imbibed

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,
