WE MUST SHOWER, dreamku with photo by Roswila
we must shower
together, this handsome young
guy and I – hiding
my shame if not my nakedness
I clamber in to join him
topping it all off? no wash cloths
standing next to me
his slim hip brushes my wide one
he places a hand
on my round belly saying
“fascinating little body”
“little?” I retort
fearful he’s being sarcastic
but it’s clear he’s not –
while we get clean together
we make awkward first-time love
[a tanka, monoku, and two tanka on a dream of 12-14-11. Photo "Found Collage" (the photo's not of an actual collage, it just resembles one) 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.
