IT'S OVER (photo) & SCATTERED (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


yes, my heart is broken and, yes,
by now most folks hearts
would be well on the mend,
but what you don't understand
is that my heart was never
whole to begin with, was shattered
and re-shattered, decades ago
when I was only a child,
and now I must search for fragments
of the last few fragments hoping
to construct some semblance of a heart
from the shards I find, that like those
of an ancient clay vessel have been
scattered across eons of strata
by floods and quakes

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,
