AUTUMN'S CAULDRON (photo) & FINDING A WAY (dreamku series) by Roswila


when we finally
break into the children’s room
it’s dark and dreary
little light reaches the dirty
walls or the dead dry plants

and the kids themselves
clearly neglected and uncared for
I fling windows open
as I make plans to change
these deplorable conditions,

especially the lack
of books and learning material –
my friends and I scrape
debris off the walls into
rapidly filling wastebaskets

I’m surprised to find tiny green sprouts at the base
of a dark brittle vine – life finding a way

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).
