THE THUNDER SPEAKS (photomorph) & ANOTHER DAY OF DROUGHT (non-dream tanka & haiku pair) by Roswila


when was the last time
I exulted over thunder,
perhaps in childhood,
even as now I'd love to wander
through dripping wet high weeds

yet this thunder brings hope
as do the few fat rain drops
exploding in the dust

[non-dream tanka and haiku, the first sketchy draft written while it was still thundering yesterday, 7-18-15. We didn't get any real rain, just those sprinkled drops. I may be stating the obvious but this also turned out to be an unintended metaphor for my personal life right now. Photomorph "The Thunder Speaks" (7-3-13 008v2b) 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,
