THE FOG LIFTS (photomorph) & A SIGHT FOR OLD EYES (non-dream mixed format poem) by Roswila


after running up
the long stairs from the beach
the shirtless buff
young man stops for a drink
from the park's fountain

he leans in slowly
toward the arc of sparkling water
as if for a first kiss

[non-dream (sort of) tanka with (sort of) haiku, written 10-21-16. Saw this guy on one of my recent walks to the ocean overlook park, which is where I took the source pic for today's photomorph "The Fog Lifts" (10-11-16 002v2b)]

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), 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,
