PRIMAL DANCE (photo) & FILM NOIR (dreamku series) by Roswila
film noir, the scene is set outdoors,
the full moon’s light on
the tall grove of winter trees
like a crackled glaze
the sound track whispers,
tendrils of lyrics fingering
the still scene like fog,
murmuring of sycamores
and moonlight in Vermont
while something listens, lifting its ancient head
each time the dreamer almost makes a wish
[two tanka and one two-liner on a dream of 10-26-12. I “heard” snatches of the actual song “Moonlight in Vermont.” And was also aware while dreaming that although it was supposed to be a film noir scene it was not typical of that black and white film genre. E.g., at the very start of this little dream I briefly wondered where the night time city and the police detectives were. Photo “Primal Dance” by Roswila]
