SHADOWS OF ITS FORMER SELF (photomorph) & "the shadow cast..." (dream based scifaiku) by Roswila

the shadow cast by his soldered wing scarless

[dream based scifaiku written in 1999 & revised into one line form in 2007. A scifaiku is basically a haiku (or monoku as the above) with a sci-fi, fantasy, horror, or cosmological theme. I used to write a great deal of them years back and am still on a Yahoo scifaiku group email list. When I realized my night dreams had again escaped me I had the urge for some reason to look through the masses of scifaiku I've written. This is one of the earliest and I ever so vaguely recall the visual dream image it was based on. Photomorph "Shadows of Its Former Self" (6-12-16 001v6d) 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.
