EVENING'S EDGE (photomorph) & TWO EVENINGS (two non-dream tanka) by Roswila


hands up sleeves for warmth,
I stand by the door, Guardian
of the Laundry Room
the setting sun casts long shadows
as the full dryer lumbers on

* * * *

ah! what a relief
others rush on by as I
sit and simply breathe
the pool water also still
on this stellar evening

[Non-dream tanka written 3-10-15 & 7-11-15, respectively. I'm working on two very long dream pieces. And it's actually not the length that's the problem, it's that I don't feel I've found the heart of either of them yet. I'm hoping that's because they're touching on new territory. Not just due to my resistance to older messages (wry smile). So in the meantime, there's always the occasional new non-dream haiku or tanka to post.

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,
