"WINDOW SEAT..." [non-dream haiga] by Roswila

The above is a haiga: a haiku on an image. The haiku is not based on a dream and was written in 1999 when I was still living in New York City. (I've only been here in California for five years). I took the photo a couple years ago in a California parking lot on a very rainy day sitting in the front seat of a car. It's clearly been computer manipulated. This haiga fits both the really cold weather we've been having the past couple of days and my mood. I'd originally thought to use it as my email holiday card. But ultimately went with something more lively and warm-colored to fit the way this season of holidays usually comes packaged.

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).
