ALL DAILY DREAMKU POSTED IN SEPTEMBER 2006

The Boy of Jars (Page of Cups) in The Tarot, by Neely Stewart, at Sandraven Gallery


ALL DAILY DREAM HAIKU POSTED IN SEPTEMBER 2006

September 1, 2006

fresh from her grave
she dances in a new style
we all dance along



September 2, 2006

she throws out
the old tunic
favorite cover-up



September 3, 2006

her new cover-up
only the surface
is hidden



September 4, 2006

as afraid of seeing
as of being seen
naked in the dark



September 5, 2006

palm-sized snowflakes
alight
awed mother and child



September 6, 2006

looking for cover
she feels molested
by his stare



September 7, 2006

menage a trois
he gives his two women
black lace veils



September 8, 2006

ahead of its time –
the baby’s yoga pose
wobbles



September 9, 2006

summer’s end
the storyteller takes
a stab to his heart



September 10, 2006

all the bulbs
burn out at once
she stumbles along



September 11, 2006

a path of rubble
the familiar man
teaches us a hymn



September 12, 2006

my deceased mother
steps from the freezer
sorrow wakes me

[Dreamed very shortly after my mother’s death when I was ten years old.]



September 13, 2006

she graciously
retrieves what was dropped
playing a part



September 14, 2006

renaissance fair
she spins mounds of thread
incognito



September 15, 2006

she belly dances
and tosses poems off
a man at dockside



September 16, 2006

it nearly escapes
(do other women have mice?)
she seals it in



September 17, 2006

his heart reconstructs
his dead lover
twin coffins



September 18, 2006

I edit out
his eyes and mouth
evil still shines



September 19, 2006

dark wood passage
the boy takes me by the nose
and leads



September 20, 2006

awesome
the giant penguin fossil
in the cliff face



September 21, 2006

her small hand swims
in the intricate gold glove
waking to sadness



September 22, 2006

she beams her will
to mend the broken mirror
dream magic



September 23, 2006

I write out a list
of reasons why she can’t stay
deceased friend



September 24, 2006

she’s handicapped
they weave her into their
bright tapestry



September 25, 2006

the blue tattoos
on their young faces:
clarity and truth



September 26, 2006

the point of it all:
The Fool at the top
of the paintree

[This can clearly be seen as the Tree of Life in the Qabala, as The Fool’s path connects to the top of the tree.)



September 27, 2006

tiny elves shelter
in the hollowed out birch tree
massive storm



September 28, 2006

cold breeze
she laughs at his ineptness
and broken English



September 29, 2006

the dog alerts them
one by one scruffy elves leave
the hollow log



September 30, 2006

twin toddler boys
one is cowed, one rebels,
a ghostly third

Resource: Haiku Resource Page, I don't necessarily agree with everything here, but it is a great place to start exploring the haiku universe.

THREE ON A WALK (Three Fall Haiku)

["Simple Pleasures" by Jonathan Cummings, webshots.com]



Today (the day I drafted this, September 30) was a perfect fall day here in New York City. I had to keep stopping to take notes on the below haiku as I went about my errands.



THREE ON WALK


next door gift
our garbage can abloom
with morning glories

* * * *


fall errand
a dusty Christmas garland
in the laundromat



* * * *


autumn stroll
above the traffic
ginkos wave


* * * *


I'm still participating in the International Association for the Study of Dreams PsiberDreaming Conference (and having a wonderful time) so my posts will continue to be less frequent until at least October 8th.

Resource: Autumn Haiku.

‘til next time, keep dreaming,
