THE SYLPHS OF SUMMER (photo) & THE DOCKING (dreamku series) by Roswila


bounce against the ceiling
of the sun lit room
(would you say that hot air
abounds around this place?)

I bend the very
tall man to my curves, one arm
around his high neck,
the other firmly girdling
the taut waist of his long back

what height he’s attained
in order to stay out of
any close embrace!
I continue tugging him
down against my wide body

a slow unresisted docking mutual harbor

BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO DREAMKU (& PHOTOS): The dream-based poems posted on this blog -- dreamku, tanka, two-liners, and monoku -- are offered in the spirit of collaboration. I have done my part. Now it’s your turn to jump in and see what comes up for you. I.e., there is no right or wrong way to understand or interpret any of these dream offerings. Even my own understandings of them change over time. And it gives me joy when a reader sees something in any of them that I have not.

For more in-depth exploration:

-- a brief post about both dreamku and my photos THE AREN'TS OF DREAMKU & ACCOMPANYING DIGITAL PHOTOS.

-- detailed three-part post about dreamku: "A DREAMKU PRIMER: Writing Haiku-Like Poems About Your Night Dreams": PART ONE: Introduction & Writing Dreamku as Dream Work; PART TWO: Elements of the Haiku Form Used in Dreamku; and PART THREE: How to Write Dreamku (the second and third parts have some overlap).
