IN THE SWIM (photo) & "gnarled tree roots..." (non-dream haiku) by Roswila

gnarled tree roots
arch like backs from rain soaked earth
sounding whales

[non-dream haiku written 12-4-14. Photo "In the Swim" (12-5-14 001v5) by Roswila. I rarely illustrate a poem with a pic -- usually just echo it in some small, often very indirect way. But I decided to take this pic on my morning walk today because it was regret, in a way, that inspired this haiku yesterday. A twinge of regret that I had not tried to get a shot of these roots. Well, no regret now but also no great satisfaction from the effort. And I can't get other possibly better angles on the roots (and that dang wall) due to where they are and my arthritic limbs. Oy! No more complaints. At least I think I've fussed enough with the pic to bring out what I saw in the roots.]

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.
