ONE BEAT OF THE DRUM (photomorph) & EMBEDDED IN THE NIGHT (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


that smart ass nerd (really, genius smart)
sings his heart out ... a sad song about loss
and yearning, accompanying himself
on a very small (unusual for the type)
idiophone;* drawn to stand by him
I play along with my own even
smaller tongue drum; the warm
wooden voices of these mini-
drums like embryonic hearts
embedded in the night

[free verse poem on a dream of 5-26-17. * Idiophone (from wikipedia), the more accurate term than "drum" for slit and tongue drums, which were closest to what I saw in the dream. I kinda, sorta like the word "idiophone" also for its vague echoing of the word "idiot" (:-D). I "actually" heard and felt these drum beats, as has happened in some really old dreams about drums I recall having. Photomorph "One Beat of the Drum" (7-3-13 008v2c) by Roswila]

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,
