MAY I GIVE YOU A HAND? (photo) & IT'S OK (two dream tanka) by Roswila


he's scandalized by
the errors in her typing --
it's OK, I say,
I'd not expected perfection
and they can be corrected

adding softly,
sometimes it's more important
to accept a gift
of help just for friendship's sake:
it can be a gift in itself

[two tanka on a dream of 5-9-14. Well, I got told by myself, didn't I? A response in a way to that old expression "If you want something done right, do it yourself." Which I blush to admit I too often wish I had done. Photo "May I Give You A Hand?" (4-15-14 001v2) 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,
