THE CLAMORING (photomorph) & ORIGAMI PARADE (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


getting above it all gives one a different
perspective on things, or so it’s been said;
but, day after day, all I find here is memories
that like sentient origami figures, unfold and
fold and refold themselves in a never ending
perfect storm of new and ever more alien
forms whose languages I somehow under-
stand: maybe it’s the all too familiar agony
their morphing causes, like aromas hooking
and landing fish after fish, whatever! they
do what they do and I suffer it; at least
most of the time the sun is bright up here,
casting, if only for a moment, a clarifying
light on each origami shape in the parade
as it rises in memory, folding and unfolding
and instantly refolding into some strange yet
familiar creature of opportunity and distance

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 or contrasting 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,
