SOAKING IT UP (photomorph) & WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


he placidly invites
me to walk with him on the huge
lush green lawn;
my reaction on seeing him approach
had, as always, been far from placid

much less as he places
his hand gently on my lower back
guiding me to the edge
of the grassy expanse glittering
in the bright afternoon sunlight

where do we go from here, I think, a lawn's such
unsure footing for my ungainly arthritic gait

but he's aware of this and I decide for once
not to worry and to follow the lead of a man I like

it's a beautiful day, everything shining bright and
smelling fresh after days of much needed rain

I, too, feeling revitalized as he steers me off
the edge onto this new and unknown stretch

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.
