BAITED LURE (photo) & ONE THING PLEASE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


I'd rather be played for a fool
by you than anyone else

so play me like a game of hearts
play me like a fiddle on fire
play me like a fish on the hook
but one thing please
don't ever play your line out
so far that it breaks

for I'd rather be played for a fool
by you than anyone else

[non-dream free verse poem written 6-5-17. Over the past few months I've become nigh on to addicted to (classic) Country Western music; it's influence can be heard in this little poem. Photo "Baited Lure" (5-16-17 025v2) 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,
