SEEKING LIFE ON THE WING (photo) & A STALK OF GRASS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the long thin grass stalk I pull
to tie the wild flowers I've picked
into a gratitude bouquet for the ocean,
falls apart when I wind it around
the gathered blossom stems;
its wheat-like tufts breaking into
V-shaped seed-wings with tiny hooks
that attach tenaciously all over the lap
of my skirt: do they know something
I don't? hm, maybe they sense the last bit
of fertile ground yet left in this stubborn
old woman with her child-like streak

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,
