DIVERSE DIVERS (photomorph) & POOLSIDE DOZE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


a vehicle’s engine grumbles
rumbling through her chest,
a deep baritone voice demanding
she open her eyes and pay attention,
or far more than this one delivery
truck will pass her by

[non-dream free verse poem written 7-1-19. Meh, but it’s all I’ve got to offer today. I hasten to add it’s the writing that’s “meh,” IMHO, not the point I found myself trying to make. Hm, that’s probably the problem: when I try to make a point the poem will most often allude me. When I let the poem kinda, sorta write itself, things tend to go better. P.S. of 7-3-19: I also think that the word "heavily" in the next to the last line, has the wrong connotation for what I mean to imply. Maybe I'll think on that and make a change in the future. Let that particular truck pass me by for now. :-) P.P.S. later on 7-3-19: as I was preparing to leave my rooms for a shopping trip, "one delivery truck" just popped into my mind to replace "heavily laden truck." It was so obvious when it hit me that I wondered why it took so long to occur to me. I'd be more concerned it's due to my aging brain if I didn't know from decades of experience that my poems are rarely completely finished. With edits sometimes occurring to me many, many years later.

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.
