A VERY LIGHT TOUCH (photo) & IT'S BECOMING A HABIT (dream narrative) by Roswila


it's becoming rather a habit, this taking chances;
well, to put it more accurately: taking considered
risks; then again, even after much careful thought
she used to reject any big risk and now she's
actually anxious to learn and try out that new
skill, so excited by the prospect she's telling that
man who's barely even an acquaintance, all about
it with much gusto and detail; he's always felt
vaguely familiar to her in their brief passings-
by, like those famous ships hailing each other
in the night, and that might be why she's taking
this tremendous risk and cuddling up next to him
on a bench, telling him about the singing classes
she's also going to be taking in addition to training
in that other new skill (all the while laughing to
herself over the question she tucks away for later
pondering: is this recent spate of risk-taking
just another form of adrenaline addiction?)
the man clearly welcomes this closeness but he's
involved with someone else and they both respect
the commitment he's made, and so this ease of
physical closeness must come from some other
affectional place; ah, yes, she suddenly realizes,
from that ancient yearning to be safely and
comfortably close with another adult human
for a time, no fear or threat of sexual heat
or violence or rejection, here
or in the offing

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.
