FADED MEMORIES (photomorph) & QUERY (dream tanka pair) by Roswila


I held my forgetting
gracefully in last night's dream,
and not really that,
just taking it as the natural
tendency of aging brains

the waking query?
of what did that dream woman
have to remind me,
and where's my acceptance
of growing more forgetful?

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,
