RENEWAL (photo) & SORTING IT OUT (dreamku & tanka) by Roswila


it's encouraging
the man and his dog climb out
of the deep rubble

he seems trustworthy
but the dog appears possessed
and if it is
by what sort of spirit --
dare I take another chance

[a dreamku and a tanka on a dream of 11-5-11. Very little dream recall and even less of that that entices me to write about it. So I’m posting an old, previously unposted dream/ku that follows along in the vein of the new dreamku I posted here yesterday (“Still A Mystery”). I.e., is something that’s re-entering my life trustworthy and/or what it appears to be? Photo “Renewal” by Roswila; for any Star Trek fan reading this, note that I was briefly tempted to name this photo “Beam Me Up, Scotty!”]

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).
