HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL (photo) & FIRST DAY (dreamku series) by Roswila


her new coworkers
and bosses seem genuinely
welcoming and nice,
the office’s windows large with
a grand view over the city

one boss hands her a
sheet of specs for the phone system
no maintenance crew
for this brand spanking new
high-rise office building

secretaries and
file clerks, executives, too,
handle installations
and repairs in the slew of
cubicles on the premises

she figures she can
cope with this extra work load
and the specs are clear
what irks her is the wild wind
from a wide open window

dare she say something?
her first day on the job and a
complaint already?

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).
