STANDING OVATION (photo) & IN THE HOME STRETCH OF A 16 YEAR DIET (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


wonderful movie!
I applaud between mouths full
of tender pot roast;
as the theatre lights come up
I decide to doggie bag the rest

when I put the food container in my back pack
I become lucid: another dream featuring food

the other about what not to eat (sugar, of course);
tonight's, touting protein and in smaller portions

neither strategy's all that new,
they've been my approach for years

what is new: they've shown up in dreams,
and what's more, sans any metaphor masks

my deep craving these days for support
and clarity's being met, if only in dreams

[a tanka with a two-liner series on a dream of 5-9-17. The title speaks true. It's taken me 16 years to come down from 356 lbs (as I've probably noted here before). Clearly, I did it in stages. This is the last stage. I'm looking forward to being a weight I'm content with within several months, for whatever time I have left on this planet. (If you'd like to read my poem on the dream about not eating sugar, scroll down to the post of April 29th. The poem's titled "The Sundae.") Photo "Standing Ovation" (4-16-10 10002v3a) 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,
