ON THE HEELS OF THE DAY (photo) & "today even bliss..." (non-dream tanka) by Roswila

today even bliss
trails darkness in its wake,
as if what's drowning
in the depths grasps desperately
after the rainbow colors of joy

[non-dream tanka written 1-30-17. Still not sure about this one; it's been tweaked many times since first written over a month ago. But it reflects the day I've just had, so here 'tis, darkness trailing it and all. Photo "On the Heels of the Day" (1-9-17 002v5) 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), 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,
