RUNE FOR THE DAY: The Solitary Camel (photomorph) & IT'S COME TO THIS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


and so it's come to this, though
no surprise as I am 73 and rather
arthritic, but still I find it a bit
more than wryly amusing today
that the steed on which I escape
the confines of my life is a walker,
and how often I stop not even so
much to rest as to soak in the sun,
its heat reaching right through
my blue sweatshirt to the skin
of my entire torso beneath,
skin that's still lively and
responsive despite
a dearth of touch

[non-dream free verse poem written 3-26-17. Photomorph "Rune for the Day: The Solitary Camel" (4-3-17 009v2) by Roswila; I've started pulling a Rune at random each morning, so of course am seeing Runes [actual, or imagined like this one] everywhere I go. :-)]

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,
