ROAD TO A VIEW (photo) & ON THE EDGE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


nearly tripping ass-over-tea-kettle on it:
no longer focusing intensely on the past
or accessing some other tangle of dendrites
in what passes for a brain but staring down
at hurting feet as they carry on, trying to
figure out what, if anything, can be done
for them: an awareness of the sidewalk
ahead rolling out from under aching feet,
when spirit suddenly skips ahead
of the plodding, down the ribbon
of cement like Dorothy on the yellow
brick road, utterly delighted by this
brush with what's always here,
if rarely recognized in all the hue
and cry: the innocent edge of tomorrow

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,
