TUMBLING (photo) & WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIEND (tanka & dreamku) by Roswila


first, she sorts my laundry
next night, washed but still wet she
stores it in a large can
another night, this best friend
hangs it all up to dry

starting at the top
I take my dry laundry down
ease and gratitude

[one tanka and a dreamku written and dreamed in January 2009. No viable dream recall from last night, so I’m posting this previously unposted wish fulfillment dream. Sigh. Sure wish I could have my laundry done for me. (I presently have three loads awaiting their fate.) This dream also puts me in mind of the fairy tale “The Shoemaker’s Elves.” Photo “Tumbling” by Roswila]

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).
