THE COBWEBS MELT AWAY (photomorph) & "large long-legged spider..." (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila

large long-legged spider
why do you keep crawling
onto each blank page,
your black reach itself cursive
what are you trying to say?

I shoo you gently – it’s said that spiders bring luck

[a tanka and a monoku on a dream of 7-10-11 posted here many years ago and re-posted today, 3-6-18. I chose the photomorph of mine above first, then this really old dream poem to go with it. (This may be only the second time I've developed a daily post by choosing the pic first.) No viable dream recall (again) last night. It's really beginning to look like this is another loss I'm facing in old(er) age: that of detailed and steady dream memory. Ah, well, it's not like I don't write other sorts of poems. Or have a life bereft of other kinds of creative inspiration. I just am not all that good at embracing changes, especially ones that cut right to my sense of center, as an on-going loss of night dreams would.

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,
