NO WAY IN (photo) & NOTHING AT ALL (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


an old country western song sadly proclaims
"I don't want to be a memory..."*

maybe it's even sadder that I would love
to be a memory to you: even just a single
night to explore your body with my own
as I express wordlessly how I feel

better to be a memory to you
than this nothing at all

[non-dream free verse poem written 4-28-17. *I Don't Want To Be A Memory, on YouTube. On another not totally unrelated topic, HAPPY MAY DAY! I say "not totally unrelated topic" because the ancient roots of May Day are in a mating/fertility celebration, and the May Pole in that context is rather phallic. Not to mention that there's a pole or two around here I might like to climb. Photo "No Way In" (4-3-17 037v4) 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,
