THE LAST THREAD (photomorph) & HAPPY (CHINESE) NEW YEAR (non-dream tanka) by Roswila


the year of the pig:
said to be about swiftness
and all things fresh
yikes! what would truly be new
is a year of rest and peace

[tanka written 2-4-19. No great shakes, but it’s what hit me when I read about this New Year of the Pig: “We can expect a fast-moving year, with a focus on family, friends, travels, gatherings and new connections. The year will be very active in all areas of life, full of opportunities and openings of new horizons. The energy supports exploring, expanding and developing. New technologies like blockchain, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, augmented reality etc. will be on a rise, changing the way we live as individuals as well as a society …” (quote from newsletter) Hey, I’m an old lady. And all that's being suggested for this coming year -- especially after the super-hyper year I just had -- sounds like a bit too much to me. But I still wish everyone A HAPPY NEW YEAR. The Year of the Pig is also said to be rather lucky.

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,
