OUT OF THE DEPTHS (photomorph) & BLUE NOTE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


if one's life were a song, and if
that song had a key note, mine
would be the blue note
in a song of diminished chords

the same shivering blue the ocean
was forever imprinted by the day
my life was turned roughly aside
from adolescence to a premature
and fearful womanhood

that color I can never seem
to replicate, try as I might,
when I'm fussing
at my photos of the sea

Freud was said to have puzzled
over this compulsion to repeat,
that rises, then ebbs, then rises
again no matter how unwelcome

like this repeated key note of blue
in my song of diminishments

thank the high heavens
and all of its deities
that the sea's so much more
than any single color
and a song than any
one note

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.
