BEFUDDLED (photo art) & MARINE LAYERS (non-dream tanka pair) by Roswila


hobbling through my rooms
on a high pain morning
I despair of ease,
even as the opening blinds
spill light despite the gray

* * * *

my favorite view
from above the dimpling pool
or is it the same?
pride at overcoming pain
blurs each dancing debut

[two non-dream tanka written 4-21-14. *Marine layer is the term for the weather condition this time of year that regularly produces a morning haze, clearing by mid-day. Often referred to here in south central CA as May Gray or June Gloom. Photo art "Befuddled" (4-6-14 009v6) 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,
