AUTUMN ROSE (photo) & ON THE BODY'S AGING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


it's like being a slow leaking balloon:
same amount of surface but more
and more sag, however, there's still
plenty of air left

and the new shapes that the less
and less supported surface takes,
no longer round and smooth
(and some might say boringly
unchangeable), become evermore
suggestive, inspiring not only
the imaginative eye but inviting
a touch that lingers

come, treat all those hungry nerve
endings in your sensitive palms
and fingers to a journey through all
these yielding folds migrating south,
like plump, soft geese
in an ongoing season of fall

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,
