LAWN WORK (photo) & "drought dry lawn..." (non-dream monoku) by Roswila

drought dry lawn sandy beach in serene morning light

[non-dream monoku haiku written 9-21-14. This monoku (one line haiku) was written a couple days ago. When I decided this morning to try to get a shot of the dry lawn to accompany it, I was surprised to find men at work. The only evidence of this in the photo above is that orange cone by a small hole (other cones and workers digging another hole were out of frame on the left). This lawn used to be watered by someone with a hose and it's a much larger lawn than this photo indicates. The sprinklers being installed will not only eliminate that lengthy labor on the part of one of our community's residents, but conserve on water. And all of this said pretty much drowns out (pun not intended) my attempt in this monoku to share a change in perception and therefore experience. Though I hasten to add I was not thinking of that when I wrote it. I was just trying to get down what the totally dried out lawn had suddenly suggested as I sat quietly looking at it and thinking of nothing in particular.

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.
