THE WEIGHT OF IT ALL (photomorph) & FOR NOW (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


there must be a note
pinned to my back declaring
"I'm responsible!"
how else to explain everyone's
assumption I'm handling it all:

from the complicated plane reservations
for Easter Island on the other side of the world

(and mind you, I can't even afford to attend
that part of the upcoming Adult Ed class),

to managing the food in the fridge
(with it's massively disorganized freezer),

to being expected (I'm sure) to thoroughly clean
the common areas of this place we're staying in,

and all without guidelines ... the only leavening moment?

my sweet tabby cat's
not only back from the vet's
but happy to see me,
asking nothing of me (for now)
but to pet her silky fur

[two tanka, four two-liners, and one monoku on a dream of 8-6-15. I started typing comments to this dream/poem. However, each tug on a strand led me to different one, and then another, and another... So, I'll let it take responsibility for itself (smile). Photomorph "The Weight of It All" (9-23-13 005v3b) 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,
