ANGELS (non-dream based poem) WITH PHOTO BY ROSWILA
she yearns for a bright
interceding rush of wings soft
and all enfolding and healing
to her core this path is now
and always has been littered
with mirrored shards of lives
both others and her own in
which she grasps as through
a glass darkly at the harsher
angels of opportunity
[Not based on a dream, though I woke up in the wee hours and felt compelled to start drafting it. I'd fallen asleep thinking about a poem by a friend, WARRIOR. I should wait before posting ANGELS, as it hasn't even had a chance to "settle" (though it has gone through many drafts already). Ah well, I can always edit this post later should further revisions suggest themselves. Photo "Spinning Staw Into Silk" by Roswila]
The archives in the sidebar hold years of the daily dreamku, tanka, monoku and photo posts I've made, grouped in one post by month. As I no longer post dreamku (or non-dream based poems) strictly daily, each post will appear below and then in the archives by the day on which it was posted.
There are many other sorts of posts here, not all dream-based. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non-dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers than myself), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.
