THE FUTURE OF DREAMS (Five Scifaiku)
I've recently started organizing my haiku and other small poetry forms files. Although I've always kept paper copies of all my poems, with various computer crashes and the piles of unorganized paper copies, they have been in rather a mess for some time. Many don't have any date on them at all or any mention of where they may have been published, and too many aren't even on my current computer. It's quite an undertaking but I feel up to it.
The poems below of mine are scifaiku, a haiku based form with science fiction, fantasy or horror themes. I unearthed these as I began this big organizing project. They were all written back when I first discovered the form, probably all in 1998 or '99, and I've edited a couple slightly where I thought I could improve them. I've selected them because they all reference dreams.
they ride starships
invaded by bodies
the dream ship fades
lost in space
of frozen dreams
strange dreams, these
the elders say they are of earth
dreams of earth burn away
under the constant sun
‘til next time, keep dreaming,
[aka: Patricia Kelly]
