PREHISTORIC FLASH: Dreamku Series by Vera Charline Wareham


I shrink to bird size
lizards and fowls small as fleas
beneath cypress roots

dinosaurs were huge
compared to us now
we were larger then

now we are to birds
as we were to dinosaurs
largest predators

calcium layers
lie as man's prehistoric bones
earth strata

our skeletons
mix with our banquet of prey
proof too big to see

Charline has been writing dreamku for some time and has joined the DREAMJIN (for dreamku) Yahoo group I recently started. She posted this wonderful series a few days ago and I share it here with her permission.

Charline has posted two of her other dreamku series to her blog, Patchwork Faces of the Moon. There is also a colorful variety of modern haiga using her own photos and writing, that you might enjoy commenting on.

The above image is the April 15, 2008 Daily Mandala by Henry Reed, and is used by permission. I suggest visiting and checking out the wide variety of stunning mandalas on his blog.

The Dreamku series looks great with the Mandala by Henry Reed. It reminds me of a flashback... although of a sixties rather than a prehistoric variety. They do compliment each other. Thanks for showing my work and introducing me to Dreamku.

Exactly! When I first saw that mandala -- which was before I'd seen your series -- I thought of all the 60's art and flashbacks. :-)
