COLORED BY MEMORY (photo art) & "twisty trees finger..." (non-dream poem) by Roswila

twisty trees finger
the twin edges of ocean
cliff and arriving night
blooms whose name I do not know
scent every nook and cranny

an art class awaits
inside the old school building --
I'm barely on time
but pause just a bit longer
outside the lines and lessons ...

perhaps it's the yearning to stand again undefined
at fringes that suffuses this memory with tears

[two tanka capped by a two-liner on a memory from when I lived briefly in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands in 1969, poem written 1-21-14. Photo art "Colored by Memory" (3-9-10 10001v3) by Roswila]

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, as the above is), 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,
