DREAM HAIGA: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 3/19/07

[breath stopping//the Pegasus lands//before me]


This week's prompt at One Deep breath is to think about breath/breathing, or simply to do it and see what happens. :-)

The above haiku is based on a very old dream. The drawing -- done with paint and pens, I believe -- is by a dear friend, Janet, who is now deceased. Just as this dream sight (metaphorically) stopped my breath so, too, did the news of her sudden, way too young, and totally unexpected passing. She gave me this Pegasus drawing (and one other) at a time in my life when I had a website for dreams, poetry and Tarot that I called "Pegasus Dreaming." I thought of the dream on which the haiku is based as I'd just been preparing to do a post in her memory, including the other drawing. I have had the other drawing up in my home since she gave it to me. It serves as a reminder of her generous spirit. Now that it's scanned, it will be going right back up.

You can visit One Deep Breath for links to others' varied and creative responses to this prompt.
