DISCONNECT (photo) & THREE (dreams based free verse poem) by Roswila


groups of three keep invading the night's dreams
as they have the previous several evening's sleep;
some consisting of a trio of objects, others of people,
and all attention grabbing and annoyingly so as they
pull my awareness from the dream currently playing
out; and, hell, I have never done well with numbers,
they don't add up properly, and their significance --
especially the number three! -- tends to the painful;
yeah, just think of the Three of Swords in the Tarot
(it's most common glyph is a heart pierced by three
swords), or the classically torturous love triangle
(a man at the apex who won't make up his mind),
or the Freudian Oedipal complex (father, mother,
and child -- need I say more?); I desperately want
to shoot this threnody of threes and all the others
flying about, out of the air of my dreams, nay,
out of the skies of my entire waking life as well,
like the flapping squawking alien birds they are,
before they can land to build their tangled,
thorny nests in my heart again

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,
