WATCH YOUR STEP (photo) & "has it been worth it? ..." (non-dream tanka) by Roswila

has it been worth it?
this “long strange trip” we’re on?
spin your own answer
it’s all you’re likely to get
in this madly morphing world

[non-dream tanka written 12-2-19. Those words in quotes are from the Grateful Dead song TRUCKIN’. I’d begun singing it under my breath while sitting yesterday on the balcony that overlooks our retirement community’s pool. Photo “Watch Your Step” (5-25-09 1719[2]) by Roswila]

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 or contrasting 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,
