DREAMKU: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 1/21/08

Art (traditionally named "Temperance") in The Via Tarot

This week's prompt at One Deep Breath is "vision," which I immediately associated to an artist's vision. Especially to that statement attributed, I believe, to the sculptor Rodin when he was asked how he created his statutes: that he simply saw what was already in the marble and cut away anything that was not that. Then I thought of the image on the above Tarot card and that took me to an old dreamku of mine (dreamed and written April 2007) that I've posted with it. By the way, I do not limit my understanding of "artist" only to those who paint, sculpt, etc. I believe we are all artists, in one way or another. After all, we each create a unique life with what we are given.

"Dreamku" is a haiku-like form based on night dreams that I've been developing for some time now and that a few others are also now occasionally using. (You can check the home page of this dreams and poetry blog -- just below the DAILY DREAMKU -- for more information on dreamku. And should you be interested in the Yahoo dreamku group I will be forming once I've settled into my new home cross country in California in a few weeks, please leave a comment or email me.)

I also highly encourage you to check out One Deep Breath (link above) and read the comments to enjoy others' intriguing and always inspiring responses to the prompt.
