BITE ME (photomorph) & THE SLAP DOWN (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila

I don't know what to say in sad memory of the 9/11 terror attack in my former home city of New York. Except my hope that the passage of time continues to heal the wounds and ease hearts. I know I will never forget that day as I was still living in New York City at the time. My heart will especially always go out to all those who lost someone that day.

he's clearly surprised
but it doesn't begin to hide
his condescension
yes, I was quick enough to slap
that annoying no-see-um* down

but what's so surprising about that?
he doesn't have a corner on quickness

[tanka and two-liner of a dream 9-10-15. *No-see-ums = tiny biting flies (or midges). Photomorph "Bite Me" (5-10-13 12651v8a) 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,
