FULL CONTAINMENT (photomorph) & WHERE THERE'S SMOKE (non-dream tanka) by Roswila


waking from a nap
to an overheated room:
dreams curl away from
memory like the wildfire smoke
above the distant mountains

[non-dream tanka written 12-17-17. BTW, they're now saying full containment of the Thomas wildfire will be by January 7; it's at 50% containment at present. We here in Goleta/Isla Vista are still very fortunate. But all remains to be seen when the winds pick up again sometime tomorrow. Photomorph "Full Containment" (6-12-16 001v2w) 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,
