INCHING UP THE SKY (photomorph) & TREASURE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


the radiant violet of the small blossom
steals all of my attention, and I stop short
to stare at its elegant hunting horn shape,
lined with pale gold

when a crow begins cawing insistently
in the tree near me, as if to say "Look at
me, look at me, look!" I reluctantly lift
my gaze from this violet beauty, knowing
from long experience that all I need do
to satisfy it would be to look directly up
at this dark clown and say something, even
a simple "Well, hello!," and so I do

I turn quickly back to the treasure
of the flower, just in time to be surprised
by the sight of two bees stealing
side by side out of the golden throat
of the hunting horn, to disappear like
Robin Hood and one of his Merry Men
into the surrounding greenery

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,
