ALIEN MITOSIS (photo) & A MONKEY'S UNCLE (dreamku series) by Roswila


well, I’ll be a monkey’s
uncle! this man actually
appears to like me

he’s not quite the type
I usually fall for, yearning
from a distance
but he’s rather nice and seems
to enjoy my company

oh no, don’t tell me
I don’t want to hear this tape
I’ve stumbled across:
he sincerely believes he was
once abducted by space aliens

but I still like him
(a lot) and he still pursues
me respectfully
so what does it matter what
he thinks in one corner of his mind

when all is said and done (and believed) it’s actions
that count – and his speak volumes of integrity

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:

-- very brief comparison of dreamku and haiku: DREAMKU ARE NOT HAIKU

-- 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).

-- a short up-dating post about the three-part "A DREAMKU PRIMER" -- Important Up-date to A DREAMKU PRIMER....".
