FALL'S LEAVINGS (photomorph) & TRASH DAY (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


a woman I kinda, sorta know, comes along
just as I realize there's no space left even
at the back of the tall garbage receptacle,
for my load of toss-aways, and I don't have
a larger bag into which I can put it all to hang
off an edge of the full to bursting, many layered
container; the woman acquaintance doesn't
seem at all phased by this situation and is
her usual friendly self; I do not want to
interrupt her sunny chatter as she goes about
stuffing, then hanging a big bag of her junk
off the front of the tall trash can; I hesitate
to and ultimately don't inquire if she
has another large garbage bag to spare;
(sigh) maybe someday I'll also find out how
to toss away this difficulty I have
with asking for what I need

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,
