COMMINGLED (photomorph) & SURRENDER (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


stop it!
stop trying to fix it!
stop trying to rewrite this turbulent story
to meet your need
for calm
for clarity
for a sense it can not have,
there are just too many levels:
you cannot peel apart the excreted
layers of a pearl whose shape
you do not like and re-arrange them
to reflect what you want them to,
you simply must allow yourself
to give up
to be defeated
to go under the wheels of the juggernaut
yet one more time ... too often the only
fragment of free will left to us
by this struggle we call life
is to surrender

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,
