I BLUSH TO ADMIT (photomorph) & "Filling life's framework..." (dream based tanka) by Roswila

"Filling life's framework
remains the goal," she asserts
then blushes, aware
no one's likely to understand
nor, if they should, to agree

[tanka on a dream of 10-3-15. The words in quotes are verbatim from the little dream. BTW, I got all caught up in whether "or" or "nor" is grammatically correct in that last line. After Googling and not getting a clear answer, I'm sticking with "nor" as it backs up the negative of "no one." I also had quite a time with whether all those commas are needed. But am keeping them if only because the framing of the quotes seems to ask for them in order to be consistent in style. Though I have left out commas that could go at the ends of lines two and four. The line endings themselves do the work of commas, I should think. Photomorph "I Blush to Admit" (8-18-15 004v4b) 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.
