LOVE KNOT (photo) & WRITING AS AN EROTIC EXPERIENCE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


sidewalk shadows of trees and cars and people's
leggy forms aren't any more visually compelling
than ever, nor is the wind's re-shaping of these
ephemeral patches demanding more than
a casual glance, yet they keep fingering
my attention like a shy new lover, raising
my level of interest to an uncomfortable
and pleasurable high, enough that I
simply must release that pen from its
zippered prison, grasp it firmly
in hand, and bring it to the empty page

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,
