FALLING THROUGH THE NIGHT (photomorph) & THAT DEEP NIGHT (dream tanka series) by Roswila


at one end of night,
a dream of my brother at age six,
at the other end,
an even vaguer dream of that old boss
of mine, and I mean old: he was 96+

both dead now a bunch
of years (my brother at only 65),
as I dream away
almost every night about them or any
number of many others, long gone

my own ongoing
waking life, too, often more like a dream,
bookended by all
the memories of those who’ve gone before into
that deep night, about which dreams can only guess

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,
