Waking unsettled

Waking unsettled

Was it dream or memory

Of all being lost

Real world catcher draws a blank

So anxiety can calm

For Eugi’s weekly prompt which is ‘Dream Catcher’. This Tanka speaks to those mornings when you wake unable to tell if a dream is real or not!


This is not a spoon

Echoes of innocence
Stir at its sight.
Jelly and icecream
And my delight.

Of days of play
And summer’s light.
Clowning around
And all things right.

This is in response to ‘not a prompt’ from dverse – thank you fine blogger! My this is not… is a spoon from my childhood.

For my American friends Jelly in the UK is a pudding best served with ice cream 🤤
