ALICE BLUE GOWN (photo) & IN THE ROUND (dreamku series) by Roswila


we can clearly see
that his heart chakra’s not as
open as the others
this is surprising as he’s
always seemed a caring person

maybe, I say to
reassure his dearest friend,
his other chakras
spin ‘round his tightened heart to
support it ‘till it can open

these words have to squeeze
by a swelling in my throat
unexpected soft sobs

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).

-- a brief up-dating post about the three-part "A DREAMKU PRIMER" -- Important Up-date to A DREAMKU PRIMER....".

Fantastic Poem!

Liked the last line as well...Keep Dreaming! Yeah, dare to dream, dare to walk alone, dare to achieve what's best, dare to get what makes difference amongst the rest!

Keep penning always

Good post

Thanks for your comment. If my guess is right, I encourage you also to keep writing. And in any case, of course, to keep dreaming.
