SINGING FOR THE SKY (photo) & "her memory gone..." (one-line senryu) by Roswila
her memory gone and yet, and yet, how she sings!
[one line senryu [very similar to haiku] written in Feb. 2016. One of the aspects of living in a retirement community is seeing more than the wider populations' share of neighbors in various stages and kinds of memory loss. This senryu is actually a composite "she," based on listening to several different women over the 9 years I've been living here. Music does seem to stick rather tenaciously in memory. My hope is that they enjoyed singing. A couple, though, weren't even aware that they were singing softly and sweetly to themselves. Photo "Singing for the Sky" (11-8-16 003v2) by Roswila]
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.
