COLORING BOOK (photomorph) & THE COLORING BOOK (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


is it stealing when
he willfully tossed it aside
and then forgot it?
I'd really like to finish
coloring in all the pictures

all that's left to do
anyway in this old book is to
color in noses,
all those little blank triangles
in haphazardly colored faces

I've the perfect color for this first nose,
a lovely bright, cotton candy pink

and my pastels box bursts with choices; hey,
I'll just be finishing what someone else started

[two tanka and two two-liners on a dream of 9-20-15. I laughed out loud on recalling this "no noses" dream. It's the second such dream image in the past few days. Lots of noses getting out of joint around here, ey? Photomorph "Coloring Book" (8-7-14 010v12a) 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,
