DREAMKU: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 4/30/07



the whirling seal
from beneath the frozen sea
joy or insanity

The above is what I am now terming a "dreamku." I.e., a haiku-inspired form about night dreams. This is a very old dream that I wrote a lengthy poem about years ago and just recently tried revising, to no good result. When I saw today's One Deep Breath prompt to create something on a "sea" theme I immedately saw the seal in the sea of this old dream.

You can visit One Deep Breath to read the entire prompt, and to enjoy the variety of others' responses.

‘til next time, keep dreaming,

I remember seeing a seal pop its head up out of the water when we were traveling the Gaspe Peninisula... and this was late in the year! I think he was having lots of fun, though- they seem to do that a lot...

Seals always seem to be smiling, so I would opt for joy. Nice image.

I'm liking these positive takes on the seal's aspect in this old dream. Thanks! :-)

I love the image of the whirling seal. Smiling of course!

i liked the seal's little cameo - i've never seen a seal in the sea (nor in a dream, for that matter!) so i'm not sure i can comment on its aspect, but i enjoyed the 'dreamku'!

It would be insanity for us, but natural for them. I see I am not the only one trying to figure out dreams of strange things and places.
