AND JUST WHY DON'T YOU BELIEVE ME? (photomorph) & A FIRST STEP (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


it's not clear yet how the treatment's going:
the hospital staff's encouraged, though,
because he's had his first almost normal
bowel movement in more years than he
can remember

and now that his issues with elimination
seem to be on the mend, the doctors put
their heads together and begin
to research how to address the problem
he was admitted with: disabled assimilation

he sighs quietly, his head turned aside
into the overly fluffy pillow, barely tolerating
the bed rest they've prescribed as a first step
in his further healing:

go figure that accepting what's being offered
with care and thought from experience
would be even harder than rejecting
what's not wanted or, worse yet,

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.
