LINES OF COMMUNICATION (photo) & FOGGY MORNING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


crows fly low as if to avoid
the heavy gray skies,
cawing after one another,
swooping from telephone wire
to building edge and back again,
their blackness crisp above
the definite edges of wires
and roof tops, a carnival
of clarity on this foggy morning
that invites the question
of the withholding rain

[non-dream free verse poem written 10-14-16. I'm still not sure this is finished (I've worked on it quite a lot since writing it over a month ago), but I have nothing else new to post. And as rain is predicted for later this afternoon it feels like an appropriate post. Photo "Lines of Communication" (10-30-16 018v2) 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,

Wow, it's always lovely to get a positive response. But nicer yet when it's about a poem I've been so unsure about. Thanks. Hope you had a delightful Thanksgiving, LGD.
