PAINTING WITH LIGHT & SHADOW (photomorph) & OLD FOOLS (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


my new friend, a large, soft-bodied old
man at least as ancient as I am, smiles at me
as he hobbles by to sit at a table behind me;
I feel him tugging very lightly on my long
white, braided pony tail but try to stay focused
on the dinner table conversation where I am
until something tells me I’d better check out
just what he’s actually doing behind my back:
LOL! he’s dipped my braid in a large glass of
lemonade and is flapping it lightly in the air
as if preparing a brush to start a painting or
calligraphy stroke! I instantly grab my tail
from him and splatter him directly: “Take
that, you silly old rotter,” I say, thinking
with a burgeoning affection that there’s
truly nothing like a pair of old fools

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,
