IN THE ROUND (photomorph) & THE WHITE BALLOON (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


one white balloon on the loose
rolls and bounces in the light wind
down the sidewalk along
Camino Pescadero

sometimes ahead of me like a child
skipping, sometimes wandering
in the street as if daring a passing
vehicle to stop it or flying off
to pop out at me from behind
a parked car, its simple wholeness
even surviving a series of bobblings
against pointed drought
dry branches of bushes

when this delicate companion
heads for all the world
with a conscious purpose
rapidly down a side street
where I'm not going I briefly wish
I could call it back, a mother worried
about her exploring toddler

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,
