THE FIRE WITHIN (photomorph) & THAT FIERY BRAND (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


she'd rather play
the blame game
and say he broke her,
but the truth is she held on to
the imagined possibilities
of him like a burning brand
that ultimately split her
wide open, a long over due
opening onto unfelt pain
that she didn't know
she wanted, much less
needed, when she took up
that fiery brand

[non-dream free verse poem written 12-12-16. BTW, "brand" is an Old English word for "branch." Photomorph "The Fire Within" (12-09-16 003v2) by Roswila]

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,
