IS THIS THE EXIT? (photo) & "the plastic swan floats..." (non-dream senryu) by Roswila

the plastic swan floats
down the pool behind its shadow
... bassackwards

[non-dream senryu written 10-21-15. Don't know why I get such a kick out of the plastic swan usually floating around in our pool. Maybe because for an inanimate object it often has such "life" to it. Today's accompanying photo was taken a year and a half ago, but it's the same swan, same pool as in the senryu. Photo "Is This the Exit?" (6-14-14 009) 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.
