RIDING DOWN THE NIGHT (photomorph) & THE HIGH HORSE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


why am I getting up on
my high horse?
well, maybe because I feel
far safer up here,
out of reach

or would you prefer
that I crawl inside
this hollow ride
and rock my way boldly
into your world, only
to split open like that
wooden horse of myth,
spilling the danger
that's extruded
by unrelieved fear

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,
