THE LONG WALK HOME (photo) & "where's your walker ..." (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila

where's your walker,
I ask of the woman even
older than I am
she's unconcerned, and then I notice
she's hugely pregnant, her belly moving

omigosh! this nearly deaf, frail senior's
about to give birth on the sidewalk!

well, at least the woman's priorities are straight:
supported walking's the least of her concerns

[a tanka with two 2-liners on a dream of 8-17-18. And I think the basic point of this dream is exactly those last two lines. I'm still focusing on the least important issues in my life that need to be dealt with. BTW, I have a dream narrative on the back burner from 8-16-18, on this same issue. I'd been unclear about that narrative until the above dream and now I get it. It's going to take some re-writing before posting. And I just realized on typing these notes, that an even earlier non-dream poem I posted on 8-17-18, with a belly dancing image, can be read to refer to this same issue.

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,
