A WALK TOO FAR (photo) & "Dad's remembered voice..." (non-dream tanka) by Roswila

Dad's remembered voice:
"Lift your feet when you walk, Sis"
as I trip again
the grey carpet too close
to my stiff arthritic step

[non-dream tanka written 5-21-14. In my FOO (love that acronym for "family of origin") I was called Sis or Patty. Dad was the one usually using Sis. He stopped using that nickname for me around the time I was ten when my mother died. Of course, lots of things changed then. Photo "A Walk Too Far" (4-15-14 069v2) 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,
