TORNADIC (photo art) & "no matter ..." (non-dream scifaiku) by Roswila

no matter her perpetual cyclones
the empaths see right through her

[Scifaiku written 6-9-14 in response to another scifaiku on a Yahoo group I've been participating in, on and off, for many years. Scifaiku are basically haiku/monoku/two-liners with sci-fi, fantasy, horror, or cosmological themes. In this email group (posts can also be made on the website) we often respond in long strings to each others' 'ku. The response (much as in the Japanese renku form) can be very subtle or direct, or even a punning one. Forgive me if you've read my previous explanations of scifaiku, but it's been some time since I posted one so clarification could well be due. BTW, I tried posting a link to info on the scifaiku Yahoo group I'm with. But anything Yahoo these days can be frustrating to deal with. Suffice it to say I kept getting an error message, though the link I used was absolutely correct and coded fine on this blog. So if you'd like to get more info on it, search for "scifaiku" at Yahoo groups and click on the one with a feathered orange icon. Photo art "Tornadic" (9-13-10 10104v7) 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.
