ROLLIN' ON (photomorph) & ROLLING BY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


beyond the white lace
curtaining the night:
the distant surf of spinning
tires on tarmac

and I imagine the old moon, too,
rolling by above this dead calm
of sleeplessness

new spin after new spin
rising then passing

as a heartbeat,
as cotton candy

[non-dream free verse poem written Jan. 2011; revised 11-13, & 6-17. This has probably appeared here in one of it's earlier versions (under a different title). But it's now finally whipped into shape. At least I think so, given I sometimes edit poems many years after writing them. Witness this one. :-) Photomorph "Rollin' On" (6-4-17 006v2i) 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,
