WAITING FOR THE SUN (photo) & THE DRONING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila
like a bird she tilts her head toward the droning
in the sky; in the sky over there toward which
she tilts her head like a small bird in a bush,
tilting her head she looks again toward the rumbling,
for what will fly, gliding safely on by, and what
will storm endlessly down like the Trade Towers*
feeling as tiny as a bird among many tiny birds
in the shadowy, tangled bushes she wonders
and worries while she tilts her head toward
the droning, following its hypnotic demand
around and around the foggy sky
[non-dream poem written 3-16-17. It was fun to play around with repeat words and rhythms in this poem, something I rarely do. FYI, there's what must be a small tourist plane, that sometimes circles and circles the ocean overlook when I'm sitting there. *A reference to 9/11; I was living in New York City at the time, which horrific tragedy left me somewhat more sensitive to planes overhead.

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.
