SEED DRAGON (photomorph) & WHAT SHE WANTS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila
WHAT SHE WANTS
what she wants most, underneath
her protestations of "love," "safety,"
and "peace," is for the world to mend her,
to offer only what heals her wounds
and ameliorates her scars, so that she
can studiously ignore anything that rubs her
the wrong way or simply lacks a promise
of succor, leaving most of what touches
on her life to sink in the oceanic depths
spreading out below her narrow wake,
these unacknowledged layers beneath
her passage growing and glittering
like an ancient dragon's hoarded treasure

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.
