ROSE FROM THE SEA (photo) & THE CHOICE (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


which of these two new
photomorphs of mine
do I want to hang in that blank
space on my freshly painted wall

neither may be of
anything actually in existence
but each resonates
at a deep level hooking my
emotions and memories

so, the black and white
one with lots of charcoal grey?
that hurts my heart
putting me in mind of the one
who stalks and bedevils me?

or the one in dark
aqua shades that verge on black?
prompting memories
of the ocean out of which
the one who stalks me arose?

the one I can't shake?
or the other, its monumental source?
surprising myself
I take on the risk of not knowing what
will rise this time and choose the ocean

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,
