BACKBONE (photomorph) & ON DEMURRING (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


watch me as I walk away
from you, for there, riding
the blue curve in the shadows
of my back lies both my power,
and my desire for you

for I learned long ago not to
face a man down, for only danger
has lain beneath confrontation

but rather, demurring before
I turn around and lift my face
to his, I wait for express
acceptance of what
he sees heating there,
along my back:

my power, distant and not yet
hot enough to burn but bright
enough to ignite his eyes
with the serpentine rising
of its flame

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,
