AT THE EDGE (photomorph) & DESPITE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


despite many years of evidence to the contrary
she continues to believe there's a bottom she
can build she can't fall through, but ... here
goes another one, crumbling from beneath
her hobbling feet with each step; maybe
she's just not yet found the right materials
with which to construct a solid
underpinning, or equally likely, she
doesn't know enough about architecture
and especially how to build for load
bearing; then again, maybe she simply
needs to give up on creating a ground
floor she can't crash through and simply
embrace living in free fall from one
chaotic wind swept surge to another,
an air diver in training

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,
