MAULED (photomorph) & IMPACT (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the impact of the purple blossoms
is almost a violence on this sun-bright
morning, triggering as it does land mine
recall of that photo taken on my sixteenth
Easter Sunday: I, in my new outfit,
totally accessorized in shades of purple,
radiating pride in my sartorial choices,
unaware that the shadows of our family house
and leaning trees surrounding me give the lie
to all the sunshine, exposing for those
who would see beyond the lavenders,
a darkness foisted upon me that I hide
from others and myself behind proud purple
banners, oblivious to the irony that deep
wounding bruises, too, are purple

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,
