EYE ON THE MOUNTAIN (photomorph) & PORTALS (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


ah, by all the gods and goddesses, she craves
this man's embrace (and much more) ...
and so she takes the chance, backing through
the doorway to where he waits (for her?
she can't tell, can never tell what he wants
from her, if anything at all); before he has
barely registered her arrival or even moves
a muscle, she's shut the door and flattened
herself, face first against the inside of the
wood door: he must not see her eyes, must not
be scared off (of course, he'd never admit fear,
but simply find some excuse to avoid her),
for to look into her eyes he'd know again how
much she sees and understands through these
wide open twin burdens of vision she has,
giving her an owlish look (dilated pupils
like dark suns with the thinnest corona of pale
blue); then, as she's so dearly hoped, he moves in
to embrace her from behind, every inch of her
own body in humming contact with some part
of him; she feels safe enough now to swivel
around and face him within the snug hug
but she's extremely careful not to raise her
eyes to his: maybe later after they're steeped
thoroughly in carnal knowledge (as is so surely
about to begin) she will take the risk that he
won't be put off by the non-human mien her
orbs give her, and she'll raise her dark raptor
eyes to his, letting them become the portals
they were always meant to be

[free verse poem on a dream of 6-28-17. The image of over-dilated eyes with a thin (what I call in the poem) corona, came right from a fantasy novel that's my before sleep reading these days. The man who has the owlish look is a rather evil character, so I hope that's no comment on the woman in this dream as, of course, it was me (:-D). Also, one sign of sexual arousal is dilated pupils. This feeds into the eye image of the dream as well. Photomorph "Eye on the Mountain" (11-29-09 8391v4) 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,
