IN THE ROUGH (photomorph) & THE RIDE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


yeah, I realize
you didn't plan for it to be
such a rough ride
but I'm having a hard time
holding on to equanimity

it's no small challenge to enjoy the roadside scenery
with all the Under Construction signs in the way

and the many sudden detours, and changing exits
make it more like a carnival ride gone berserk

not to mention the constant background noise
like itching powder beneath my skin

so, yeah, I recognize you didn't want it to be this way
but it's still the roughest ride on which I've ever gone

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,
