MAGENTA SEEP (photomorph) & AT LEAST (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila
at least the cordyline* does not avoid me,
but keeps reaching out as I pass by,
even tickling my forearm as if to get
my attention; it may be the sun
toward which it truly advances,
but I'm not proud and enjoy
this soft brushing from its
long magenta fingers

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.
