SYNCOPATED RHYTHM (photomorph) & POVERTY'S JUST FINE WITH ME (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


he's a miner for a heart of gold*
but not for me that cold glittering ore,
give me the heat of a fleshly life

not for me a gilded perfection,
I seek a heart that proudly shares
its unique beat, syncopated or stretched,
wild or calm, and awash with messy life

not for me the teasing of gold,
with its wealth of slick promises,
poverty's just fine as far as I'm concerned,
especially when the rhythm's right on
and hot

[non-dream poem written 12-20-17. *From lyrics to Neil Young's song "Heart of Gold." Photomorph "Syncopated Rhythm" (11-27-15 007v6g) by Roswila]

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,
