DESCENT (photo) & TURNING POINT (dreamku series) by Roswila

Remembering All Who Died on 9/11 in the New York City Twin Towers Attack, and their families and friends, and with a deep hope that all rescuers and residents of the area during that time are healthy or have access to the best treatments.

she’s delighted to
run into him and continue
hiking together,
lightly flirtatious with
an intimate ease

the clock hits the time
he assumes they’ll turn back
it feels as if she’s
breaking some unspoken pact
to say her hike is not over

she starts to explain
that she always goes further
on her walks than this
but she’s already talking
to his broad shouldered back

he’s turned on a dime
she’ll turn around later, cued
by the setting sun

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).
