SCIFAIKU: Response to One Single Impression Prompt of 6-8-08



sleeping kittens
float by the delighted child
no-gravity surprise


The prompt this week at ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION is "pets." The small poem above is a scifaiku, a haiku-based scifi/fantasy theme form I've shared here a few times before.

I'm sure you will enjoy a visit to ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION, where you can read the full prompt and others' intriguing responses.

Hi All!

I can see clearly why one would think I'm referencing a dream in this little poem. But it's not a dreamku, it's a scifaiku. What I had in my, um, shall I say, warped mind's eye was a child on a space ship when the gravity was off, watching her or his kittens float by....

However, after typing all that I guess it really doesn't matter a whole lot whether it's read as dream-based or as having been spun in my conscious imagination. It's still the product of non-ordinary consciousness. :-)
