LOCK DOWN (photo) & MASKS (dreamku series) by Roswila


my co-worker and I
have developed a very
warm relationship
so why’s she wearing that ski-
like dark aqua mask?

and how do I know
not to ask her about it
but just accept that
I’m cut off from the fluid
world of her emotions

worse, I have to fight
the paranoia that says
I did something wrong
and that’s why she’s concealed
as we work side-by-side

I struggle to focus on our task, after all
am I even aware of all my own masks?

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).
