SKY TRELLIS (photomorph) & JULIET'S COMPLAINT (free verse dream inspired poem) by Roswila


stuck on this damn balcony, again!
the romance just ain't makin' it
up this far up anymore

I've almost forgotten what your voice
sounds like, up close and personal, and your
hot breath will never reach my breasts
or belly from down there where you stand,
mumbling to me through the twilight
all those loving, seductive words
that the lucky breezes get to
carry away with them

so, you whom I would invite into my private chambers
in a blink if you stood toe to toe with me, dispense
with all the talking and climb that strong old vine
gracing the wall, up to my balcony and bed at last

the time for initiatory heating's past

we're in danger of burning out
before we even start

[dream inspired (as opposed to dream based) free verse poem written 9-1-16 (with several revisions since). Although there is a dream kernel in this poem, it was a tiny, vague fragment of a much larger forgotten dream. Which fragment I now no longer even remember. Also, the Romeo & Juliet scenario came totally from my waking mind as I began drafting the poem. Of course, it is possible my choice of that famous balcony scene is more closely related to the dream than I know since I can't recall any of the dream now, five months later.

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.
