CIRCLING THE NIGHT (photomorph) & EVEN IF (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


even if what I so desperately
want to be true actually is:
that you return my desire,
what good is this?

what use is a truth that finds
no expression, no concrete action?

such a truth is nothing more
than a ghost wandering the inner
realms, lonely and sad, coming
from nowhere and having
no place to go

I would rather not be so haunted
by a requited desire that never roosts,
like two birds circling each other
on aching wings, forever at a distance

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,
