WASHING THE SKY (photo) & THE OLD WILLOW (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


fill me up completely, old willow, with your
endless display of dark branches; even as you
crowd every nook and cranny in this sky
clouded with distant wild fire smoke, leave no
room in me, no room at all for the hot haunts
of my life who wring tears out of me until
my agony runs dry and cracks wide open again;
so, quick, fill me up as you do the sky, gnarly,
beautiful old tree, for my attention's already
losing its grip on you

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,
