VOCIFERATION (photo) & SPEECH (dreamku series) by Roswila


the president wins
one of the contest prizes:
a special speech
with poetic phrases and
suggested hand gestures

his presentation
is spot on, no hitches or
fumbling -- but something
implied in the content
itself doesn’t suit him at all

sigh - even the president gets words put in his mouth

[two tanka and a monoku on a dream of 10-16-12. Yes, I watched the second presidential debate last night but this dream is not a comment on it. Rather, the debate provided the setting for something I have a hard time with in my own life, especially recently. And that’s contained in the expression referenced in the closing monoku: don’t put words in my mouth (or anyone else’s). I find it barely tolerable when anyone jumps to speaking for someone else, rather than listening to or questioning them. So much so that when someone makes me aware I've done it, I'm stunned and humbled (again). Photo “Vociferation” 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).
