WINTER STREET, I.V., CA (photo) & WELL CONNECTED (dream narrative) by Roswila


the red-haired woman is masquerading
as a woman as young as her niece, she's
really much older and white haired

but her senior aged woman friend
is unaware of this deception, only
being concerned for the whereabouts
of that young niece

and off the two of them go,
searching for the absent niece,
the red-haired woman in a rather
abstracted fashion

as they wander the city sidewalks
the senior aged woman
becomes aware of a thoroughly
knotted cord connecting her red-
headed woman friend and herself
by their ankles, although long
and not very thick it does keep getting
in the way, leading the two of them
in a loopy dance they choose
to make merry

when she trips over it yet another
time she notices her feet are bare
and chuckles ruefully to herself
that she's not been barefoot on
these concrete sidewalks since
her (decades ago) hippie days

then suddenly the masquerade
is over and the (now formerly)
red-haired woman, with no shame
at all, explains that her real duplicity
has been even harder to maintain:
she and her niece are actually
the same person

well, thinks the senior aged
woman, we make quite a well
connected trio, don't we?

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.
