TORNADIC (photomorph) & ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


oy! we need an exterminator,
quick, catch that crawler before
it reproduces ... what's all that
and why's the house shaking?
oh no, they're moving it,
away from the infestation!
what a bass-ack-ward approach
not to mention just plain
a couple of bugs and the entire
house gets lifted and now (yikes!)
dropped elsewhere? ... yowza! watch
you don't smash that pile of stuff
underneath ...
uh, too late, it's like Dorothy's
house being dropped into Oz by that
tornado ... hm, maybe when it hit
the ground my house squashed that
wicked witch
who's been cursing me of late?
nah, why would I ever have
such luck,
I'll just be left with this deeply
broken home to repair, and a
strange new land to learn about...
hey ... dum-dum,
stop kvetching, and roll up your
sleeves, here's that new life
for which you've been yearning

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.
