DREAMKU: Response to One Single Impression Prompt of 4/7/08


the pawned figurine
of a woman and kestrel
shelved soul


The prompt this week at ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION is "stranded." I’ve sometimes thought there’s nothing more stranded-looking than items gathering dust on a pawn shop shelf. You can visit One Single Impression to read others' responses to this prompt (that I found a bit challenging, which is always enjoyable).

The above is a dreamku, a haiku-like poetry form for writing about our night dreams. The image above was painted by Katy Kianush, Copyright © 2003, Art Arena and the bird is a kestrel (small hawk, often used by ladies in "olden times" when hunting).

Wow. The idea of a pawned figure of a window opens up many possibilities! This is wonderful food for the imagination. Thanks.

I agree with you - the dust that covers belongings that were once invaluable to the owner. The photo is beautiful and the dreamku is spectacular!

This one made me laugh. I have a foot tall figurine of Mary, as in the Blessed Virign-- in my closet, ( my mom brought it to me). Not only is she stranded, I feel guilty about keeping her there.

I never thought, before, of sadness of pawnshop items. They are. What story brought them to the store? What prevented them from being taken home? You wrote a haunting poem.

I’m late to visit because ‘life’ got in the way, but I did publish two ‘week 6’ posts for One Single Impression: Stranded ... one on each of my blogs on Wednesday of last week and I hope you’ll find time to visit. They’re here: Heliocopter Rescue and Polar Bears
Hugs and blessings,
