SUMMER MOMENTS (photomorph) & THIS MOMENT (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


well, dummy, you keep thinking the deities
aren't answering your prayers for help?
yet, here they are, giving you the great gift
of new moment after new moment, and if
these aren't answers, what are? And if you
keep smothering these precious offerings
of beauty or pain, celebration or sorrow,
peace or agitation with suffering, or denial
altogether, whose fault is that? stop looking
these gift horses in their mouths; yes,
of course they have teeth and some will
bite sooner than take to the bit and bridle,
and some will simply run away wild; but,
whatever, honey, your prayers have been
answered and are still being responded to;
you just need to ride the horse of the moment
no matter how it bucks or paces, leaps or grazes;
and, yes, even if sometimes it passes into the next
moment like a kiss you've no time to return; but
the operative word there, my dear, is "passes,"
so know it while it's here, for this moment
won't come again

[non-dream free verse poem written 4-21-17. Photomorph "Summer Moments" (6-4-17 006v2g) by Roswila; you might want to click on this image to see the details; BTW, if it looks vaguely familiar it's because it's the same pic as yesterday here, and both yesterday and today on my photo blog ... my imagination sometimes gets very caught up in the shapes and shadows of a pic, and I wind up producing many versions of it]

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,
