UNDER A DARK SUN (photomorph) & BAD BOYS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


what's this bad boy attraction about,
this gravitation toward the man of whom
it's said "Honey, he's bad news!"

well, sister, it might not be about the man
at all but the woman's need to embrace
her own dark self by taking the bad boy on:
to know and celebrate her shadow self fully,
in all its woundedness and restless charm,
its rebellion and its moments of burning light

to sprawl beneath that which she's been warned
never even to approach: the dark sun
that she somehow senses will make
her equation balance out at last

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,
