SEARCHING FOR A PATTERN (photomorph) & WHAT LIES IN WAITING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


she'd like to believe she fully feels her grief
and sorrow each time it rises, fascinating
like a swaying cobra, but she knows she's
being mesmerized by only the merest
flickerings of some ancient agony, too
huge to take on whole, a vague
foreshadowing of which slithers
sideways in the dark of her denial
leaving a pattern of shudders, like
a throwback genetic code for which
conditions don't yet exist to trigger
its full helical expression

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,
