CROW HAVEN (photo) & THE INEFFABLE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


it seems odd sometimes to turn to words
to express the ineffable, to fumble trying
to say what by-passes thought, running
wild through my body in an alternating
current of fear and delight, a demanding
and stimulating dialogue, like that one
just now between me and that agitated
crow as it paced me across the park from
tree to tree for all the world cawing
"Are we going to fly, you and me?"
my spirit and body responding
"Yes ... Ohhh, Yes! Yes!"

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.
