LOVE KNOT (photo) & WHAT I'D LOVE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


I'd love to reincarnate as a weeping willow
but not some seedling, rather more like the
old weeper I back my seated walker up to
for a rest on a long trek: this large, thick
boled tree that seeks no patterns in its
draping curves and scars, in its knots
and shifting shadows, nor even waits
for the sun to come out on this foggy
morning, but simply stands in this time
and this place; while I, who can't leave
well enough alone, sit underneath
the willow's minutely changing reach,
struggling to torture lines for a poem
from the stately silence of its presence

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,
