BRANCHING OUT (photo) & "they cannot prune you..." (non-dream tanka) by Roswila
they cannot prune you
much more, dearest jacaranda,
for what will be left
to greet the growing season,
to fully embrace the sun
[non-dream tanka written 2-8-17. And they've done several more prunings since I wrote this tanka. I've not ever watched this tree through a winter into spring before, so maybe this is what's needed and appropriate. But I sure wince each time I see more cuttings on the grass beneath it and look up into further thinned out branches. Photo "Branching Out" (2-27-17 018v3) 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.
