OPEN INVITATION (photo) & HE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila
Oy! he's here, again...
I really hadn't thought our paths
would cross anymore,
given all that goes on in
the life of a celebrity
in his recently, what with
the divorce and all...
well, seems he's going to be
a regular heart stopping haunt
but we'll have to set
some guidelines for his visits,
such as no just dropping
in without notice, like tonight
when I'm in my bed clothes
no bringing anyone else with him
(again like tonight)
if he's going to haunt me
I require his full attention
I don't want to have to listen to him
dealing with a confused companion,
while I simply stand by, trying to control
my intense response to his presence
so if he's going to persist in these visits,
they can at the very least be on my terms
...who am I kidding?
unexpected or planned visit, he'll always
have me at hello

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.
