THE BUTTERFLY TREE (photomorph) & THE WANNABE BUTTERFLY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


if a chrysalis feels
anything at all maybe
it's this hopeless pain,
this total suspension,
trapped and blinded,
seeing neither forward
nor backward, suffering
an eternal "now" of no
progress, of no touching
or being touched but
for its prison walls

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,
