SECRET LIGHT (photomorph) & PRAYER TO THE EUCALYPTUS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


ah, dear old tree, strong arms
holding your portion of the placid
blue, lift me up, too, cradle
me as a baby against the wide
chest of the sky, out of reach
of the earth's turbulent dance,
peaceful for as long as it takes
to scribble down this prayer
to you, for I'm babbling away,
only a babe still learning
how to use the magic in words
to maintain my balance

[non-dream free verse poem written 3-28-17. Haven't written a "Prayer to..." poem in quite a while. (If you'd like to read some of the others type "PRAYER TO" in the top upper left-hand search box on this page.) Not surprising that prayer popped to mind today, though, given how much physical pain I was in on my walk. Photomorph "Secret Light" (3-28-17 004v4); the source photo for this pic is of the actual tree that inspired the above writing; I snapped it after drafting the prayer/poem; by Roswila]

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,
