FROM SHADOW (photo) & "Thank you..." (dream tanka) by Roswila

“Thank you for coming,”
she herds me out of her house --
where are my shoes?
a mouse-bug skitters quickly
through the deep shadows

[dream tanka written & first posted in October 2008. I'm choosing to put up a sort of Halloween-like dream tanka simply because I had such a great time at our retirement community's costume party last night. I.e., I want to stretch out that rare high mood for a bit. Not only did I dance for the entire party (kinda, sorta, mostly from my arthritic knees up, standing in place, :-D) but also won first place for my costume. All while enjoying all the other great costumes, and being social in a relaxed fun way. Photo "From Shadow" (10-24-15 011v5) 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,
