BIRTHING HUT (photomorph) & LABOR (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


writing poetry taught me how to hear
the variegated rhythms informing language

taking photos gave me the vision to inquire
beyond the mask of the obvious

but it's this intense advent of loving him,
straight, with nothing watering it down,

no understandings or promises, nor even
physical expression between us

(no matter how this all might be yearned for)
that has brought me to this naked struggle

found only once before -- in the contracting
birth canal -- and forgotten until now:

this labor of love

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,
