THE PERSISTENCE OF GREEN (photo) & AFTER A LONG DROUGHT (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


tiny birds in the newly greening bushes
tweet "What a pity...what a pity..."
even on this gloriously sunny day,
the light on the ocean so bright
that squinting is mandatory,
and the soft, insistent lulling
of the lacey surf could lead
to a restful doze, and yet
and yet, the tiny birds
persist "What a pity...
what a pity..."

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,
