THEY ONLY DANCE AT NIGHT (photo) & ABANDONED (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the deep green shopping cart, abandoned
upside down in the park, supports pale green
wheat-like stalks growing up through its bars
in captivating feathery displays that stand taller
than all their unsupported companions bowing
their heavy heads around the cart toward the earth:

even the misplaced, the forsaken,
the seen but oh-so-carefully-not seen
bring something of value to the world,
a welcome beauty and use if we only
keep our eyes open

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.
