BUILDING LIFE (photo) & WHICH WAY (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


getting up in the morning, or for that matter,
going to sleep at night's too often as if boarding
an elevator in a high rise office building and not
knowing which way it's headed: will it ascend on
the next inevitable in-breath to the sky, offering
a freeing perspective on the massive city landscape,
or plummet straight down into the dark and chilly
dumps where all the septic tanks and water pumps
do their gritty work trying to keep the ground
clean and stable beneath the grinding wheels
and trampling feet of the city

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.
