THE HEART TAKES A DIVE (photomorph) & CAREFULLY APART (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


where's my heart going, I think,
as I see you turn a distant corner
holding a plain brown paper bag aloft
in your right hand as if it were alive
and kicking, and best kept at a distance

well, my heart's headed where it always
is these days: somewhere far away
as if in that paper bag you hold
so carefully apart from yourself
yet still do not let slip
from your grip

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,
