A LONG WAY TO NOW (photo) & ICE DANCING (non-dream tanka) by Roswila


stay in the moment
(they gently assert again)
and even as it melts
beneath your dancing feet leap
to the next crackling floe

[possible re-post of a non-dream tanka written July 2012. I've been doing a lot of talking about (and even sometimes succeeding at) staying in the moment. This tanka is an old image for what being in the moment can sometimes feel like to me. A combination of joy and danger. Photo "A Long Way to Now" (4-15-17 022v3) 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.
