WATER FALL (photomorph) & A MOMENTARY FALL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


that still small voice we all have pipes up again
(it's been particularly verbose today!) this time
to say: It's time to let the miniscule moments
of Life come to you, one after the other; to be
clear, you need to stop chasing after possible
future moments, trying to know them before
you can know them; not even the most cautious
and thoughtful seeker in the forest of the unknown
can fool something new and wild and unexpected
into hanging around long enough to be sighted
much less captured, for it is a wild thing's nature
to flee when hunted; Life only needs you to be
quiet and receptive, and it will lay its scintillating
offerings in your hands, like a flow of sweet
water over and between your fingers
from which you may sip,
before each momentary fall trails away

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,
