MELTDOWN (photo) & ALL METAPHORS LEAD TO FOOD (two dream series) by Roswila

(two dreams/one night)

Dream One

her x-ray results
await interpretation,
unique crazing in
the heart of a sherbert
raspberry ice pop

where’s her doctor?
these lines have to be read
before they melt away

Dream Two

adolescent girls
pirouette and arabesque
their ways around the stage –
a multi-media artist
deftly paints on each dancer

she recalls the first
time she tried to make art in
the moving moment:
“Like slapstick comedy,”
she thinks, “a colorful pie toss”

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).
