ON THE HUNT (photo) & THE CHASE (tanka dream trio) by Roswila


why's she chasing
after those planes in the sky?
yeah, her plane can
readily catch up and ground them,
but why remains the question

she made her feelings
known, at least they were to me,
if very subtly,
that there are other things she'd rather be about
than pinning down what flies around in the air

I just don't get it ...
but maybe I should stop chasing
after understanding
what people's real motives are: like her,
I have much better things to be doing

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.
