HOLDING BACK THE NIGHT (photo) & THE DEBT CEILING (dreamku series) by Roswila


how will she ever
pay all these monthly bills
that keep piling up?
she worries and figures but
the bills just keep coming in

they line up in stark
black and white, hanging above
from the cold ceiling
they have no mouths but she’s sure
they’re laughing at her

that this is all in the past is no help
knowing it’s memory can’t clear the air

[two tanka capped by a two-liner on a dream of 1-21-13. Photo “Holding Back the Night”]

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).
