CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? (photo) & THE STING (dreamku series) by Roswila


it’s amazing I
can even see to find her
in this dingy bar
but she asked to meet here
and there’s no mistaking her voice

through the haze it looks
like my dear friend’s about to be
put under arrest
I’m even more aghast when
I learn she’s part of a sting

if she succeeds she’ll
help catch a notorious
and dangerous thug
I approach and hug her imploring
“Please, oh please be careful, please!”

this cry from an ancient fear the dread of loss

[three tanka and a monoku on a dream of 9-20-12. Interesting, the sense of hearing is referenced here. As I thought on that I began to think that somehow hearing may be even more primal than sight. Hearing probably comes in for an infant before reliance on vision, maybe even in the womb. In any case, this thinking eventually took me to what are probably the underpinnings of this dream. I’ll leave it at that. Photo “Can You Hear Me Now?” 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:

-- 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).
