THE PATHS OF DISORDER (photomorph) & UNDERPINNINGS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


my red bra strap peeks out:
why so embarrassed when
underpinnings show
does a body have a shape
without its skeleton,
or a building
a form without its girders, or
a cosmos resist
entropy for even a second
sans the great mystery

[non-dream tanka pair mashed (:-D) together, written 8-1-18. Yeah, this might be a bit hyperbolic at the end, but, hey, overall, it was fun to write and think about. And given my life these days, every little bit of fun matters a whole lot more than usual. Hm, maybe that "great mystery" at the end is simply the humor of existence. Not a laughing at, so much as a laughing along with the ultimate absurdity of taking it -- and especially one's self -- so endlessly seriously.

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.
