THREE'S A CROWD (photo) & FOR SALE (tanka & dreamku) by Roswila


three women give me
an object each to sell at
the huge flea market
they tell me to keep what I make
and my total take’s quite good

pleased, yet I wonder
why they gave me their old stuff
and will they again

[a tanka and a dreamku on a dream of 10-27-12. This was a barely visual dream, which is rather unusual for me. But even an apparently bland or small dream can often offer several different ways to relate to it, as this one has (too much to go in to here). I did get a chuckle from this day residue: I’ve been working rather assiduously recently on cleaning out closets and other spaces in my rooms, and stacking up piles of stuff to offer to friends or to our Thrift Store to sell (or failing all that, to throw away).

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).
