BORN INTO THE SKY (photo) & THE SONOGRAM (non-dream tanka) by Roswila


shadows pulse on the page
of notes for a nascent haiku
like a sonogram ...
why try to know it beforehand,
it'll be born in its own time

[non-dream tanka written 9-15-18. Photo "Born Into the Sky" (9-15-18 009v2) by Roswila; this is of only one section of a mural I pass sometimes on my long walks. If I felt safe getting out into the street I could get better shots. But I don't, so I stick to the grass at curbside. That's enough in itself to deal with for this mobility challenged old lady. I hasten to add, though, that I had a great time working to get the shots I took. To see another pic I snapped of a different section of the same mural, click here.

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,
