Belated World Pangolin Day! How Many Species are There?

Full disclosure: I had set up a post about orangutans, but then saw yesterday was World Pangolin Day!  I find these animals fascinating.  Never knew about them until my son started watching ‘The Wild Kratts’ when he was around 4.  I mean, I knew there were armored anteaters out there, but I didn’t know much […]

Let Go

Letting go is like waving goodbye

To a leaving ship

You don’t know if it’s a permanent goodbye

You do know, another dock awaits this ship

This is my reply to Linda Hill’s prompt ‘Let Go’. If you want to join in, here are the rules:

Here are the rules for SoCS, Stream of Conscious Saturday:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

Lucid Dream

https://hajarstexts.com/2013/11/26/lucid-dream-9/

Eight years ago, I had this dream. I even made a poem about it. I’m not sure what it means, especially who the rabbit is. The rabbit could also be me. I’m not sure, if it’s a prediction, a warning, or just a story. Several applicable, yet very different situations, played a role in my life. I’ve always had lucid dreams. Last decade, they came more often and had a stronger impact on me.

Ripples, or: A renga partnership, VII — The skeptic’s kaddish

“The more you know, the more you grow” Before I began writing poetry online last year, I’d never heard of a tanka, let alone a renga. Once I came to understand the concept of a tanka, I started responding to other poets’ haikus on their blogs occasionally, to show my appreciation. I have long been […]
