A SKEWED VIEW (photo) & LAUNDRY LIST (dream tanka series) by Roswila


who stole my black shoes?
did the thief come up the subway stairs
I’d left them near?

and why are they all
saying the visiting Pope
had an affair?
and why am I so afraid
to challenge the group’s gossip?

and why did I let her
just move this scuzzy charmer
into my private space?
can’t she see the piles of
dirty laundry he’s hauled with him?

[three tanka on several dreams of 9-17-12. Hm, interesting that the first dream image is about shoes (black in this case probably references something new). Seems my footing is not as sure as it was last night and the storm has arrived. But at least I’m questioning things, not just being inundated. And maybe it will pass quickly as last night’s dream forecast. Photo “A Skewed View” by Roswila]

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).
