THE WAY HOME (photo) & AN OPEN SECRET (dream tanka & two-liner) by Roswila


when the day is done
and home’s too far away or lost
many use their office --
quiet shelter, more or less brief,
from the demanding city

familiar halls and the occasional co-worker
passing through – she always stays the longest

[a tanka and two-liner on a dream of 11-20-12. Office as metaphor for life's work, in my case, writing and other creative efforts. This dream was a response (at least in part) to my request for help from my dreams as I went to sleep last night. This answer is essentially a confirmation of what I've been doing and encouragement to keep on doing so. Photo “The Way Home” 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).
