ALL DAILY DREAMKU POSTED IN FEBRUARY 2009


Another difficult month, though with some lovely moments. At least in part, this post of February 7th illustrates this increasing focus on my part on growing:

my fingers grow webs
of flesh between them again
then disappear
a fellow male student says
he's developed webs sometimes

trying to prove
to her that I do grow webs
I hold my hands spread
and wait for them to appear
one small web shows up at last

better maybe
to pursue my education
what will grow, will grow

My favorite post of the month is this one of February 2nd:

a starry winter sky
over the snow hushed forest
I crane my neck up
so I’ll not miss watching
the broken moon’s spinning halves

a lone wolf still clings
to one of the small half moons
as its wobble grows
I understand the science
but it’s the wonder I love

yet I still hope
the teacher understands
that I clearly know
how covalent bonding
and breaking creates it all

[three dream tanka on one dream]

Some interesting background: I decorated a friend's Christmas tree (see photo above) this year and largely with decorations I’d made myself:

a lush wide green lawn
fringed by ancient oaks and elms
the young girl planting
a decorated Christmas pine
under a shadowy palm

a gentle woman
telling her not to over-water
roots relax in earth

And that last line is what I’m wishing for in my life as a whole.

Happy Almost Spring! Especially to all of you still digging out from under in snowy climes.

joy at the bottom
she’s done my laundry
even my old purple robe

she calls to me from
the bottom of the stairwell
tossing cartridges
onto the carpeted steps
she tells me “You can have two”

but can I use these
out-dated correcting strips
doubt turns to gratitude

[dream tanka & dreamku on one dream]



February 4, 2009

she'll run away
on a moment's notice
organized supply shelves

he assumes they'll be
intimate from their first date
booty call schedule

[dreamku on two separate dreams from the same night]



February 5, 2009

rescued from thieves
ancient golden parchment scrolls
wisdom crosses water



February 6, 2009

I put them to sleep
laid out atop each other
then start my escape
but the man on top wakes up
and smiles groggily at me

he’s letting me go
weighting the other man down
so I can flee
I kiss him lightly saying
you’re better than my own dad

found on the sidewalk

ALL IN A NIGHT’S WORK
(dream tanka series)


(1) THE PROLOGUE (Dream One)

the three women won’t
let me finish my story
frustration again
even expressing this need
brings me no completion


(2) THE STORY (Dream Two)

her move goes swiftly
from our shared apartment
too fast for me
I try to keep our agreements
and to be prompt as need be

things change rapidly
the large living room echos
emptiness and dust
I miss the old long bookcase
and am surprised by tears

a military man
moves into a corner
making an office
he assumes he’s welcome
and I accept his presence

curiosity piqued
I point to his game CDs
a stacked collection
he clearly expects me
to know just how to play them

frustration rises
what I don’t know, I don’t know
no matter his want
I try to play anyway
the computer screen unclear

the display flips back
to a woman’s poetry
white on black background
I can’t find the right icon
to get back to game playing




February 10, 2009

first time ever
my long-time friend pleads with me
to help her



February 11, 2009

two wizened old goats
wander around the junkyard
last of old “Blue Eyes”*

*nickname for Frank Sinatra; another dream character (a vague female nurse), whom I did not trust, told me these two goats were he.




February 12, 2009


I’m a young strong man
flying sans ship into space
floating through the stars
I don’t try using the maps
I can see in my mind

it’s much like swimming
out here in the vast cool dark
my butt lightly bumps one star
and I switch my focus
intending toward a new goal

[a pair of dream tankas on one dream; on waking I had a strong association to what I've read about The Star card: every person is a star. :-D I think I read that in reference to this Star card directly above in The Thoth Tarot.]


February 13, 2009

a lush wide green lawn
fringed by ancient oaks and elms
the young girl planting
a decorated Christmas pine
under a shadowy palm

a gentle woman
telling her not to over-water
roots relax in earth

A DAY AT THE BEACH
(dreamku series on one dream)

she takes a long walk
abandoning all her stuff
sunny day at the beach

a sudden panic
why did she leave her wallet
hasty turn around

the shoreline rises
steeply from the surf’s frothy edge
crumbling hand-holds up

she’s been through this
too many times before
ease surprises

the baby she passed
on the way down is still here
her wallet isn’t

she craves perspective
and tries to take to the air
stuck on the ground

a small dark man
stands watch as she tries again
overview at last

“Thank you Deities”
she calls from the churning height --
wish fulfilled



February 15, 2009

we are making love
then come all the complaints that
I use jam glasses
for frequent drinking of water
and leave them all around

I indicate I’ll
not do this ever again
as I try to fly
out across the verdant yard
to turn down the thermostat

[two dream tanka on one dream]



February 16, 2009

he walks ahead as
always and climbs the plank stairs
I can’t catch up



February 17, 2009

the surrogate mom
reneges on the golden couple
he can’t handle it
and deserts his sad partner
who adopts on her own

[dream tanka]



February 18, 2009

of course I have
a sex life, the baby says
I'm twenty-two......months

[Other than a big chuckle at this baby’s joke, this dream sent me scrambling to see what was going on in my life 22 months ago. :-D]



February 19, 2009

tan and trim
her body resculpted
the narrow stairway climb



February 20, 2009

my sad friend and I
sing a duet changing
the last line a little
to end with the word “peace”
and does “magic” come before?

[dream tanka]



February 21, 2009

his new lover lives
on west twenty-second street
artsy neighborhood
she’s concerned about his ex
his blithe assumption: just fine

[dream tanka; That number 22 again! I really must do some more investigating of that. I've already determined what was going on in my life 22 months ago -- as a previous dream indicated might be where to look -- and had some intriguing insights. This dream has also already turned out to be mildly clairvoyant, as an occasional dream of mine is. And of course, there are 22 Major Arcana cards in The Tarot. :-D]



February 22, 2009

white puppies jostle
and line up neatly at last
their surprise salutes



February 23, 2009

hostile striped cat
I rise above its clawing reach
further, further ...



February 24, 2009

the pregnant giraffe
kicks out feebly as she flees
her stride trumps her kick



February 25, 2009

the soles of both pair
too smooth to grip the iced street
my only shoes



February 26, 2009

a toddler girl hovers
as I work on the poster
a large block of text
needs a colorful graphic
I play with fuchsia petals


[dream tanka]



February 27, 2009

over the ocean
elevated airport runways
waterfalls cleanse



February 28, 2009

what seemed wrong with her
turns out not to be the case
on the concrete bench
she makes room for the old man
who spreads out squashing her chest

‘til next time, keep dreaming,

Hi packey,

Thanks for "reading along." I visited your link because my sweetie has been hankering after a laptop and think he might find your blog informative.

Hope to see comments from you in the future. Do you do any creative writing?
