WAVE OF THE FUTURE (photo) & "filling the empty..." (non-dream haiku) by Roswila

filling the empty
rocking chair with shadows
New Year's candle

[a non-dream based haiku written on New Year’s Eve of 2007. I knew it was going to be my last in New York City as I was anxiously preparing to move here to California in about five weeks. The rocking chair was one that my last roommate (of seven good years) used to sit in to have long chats with me. During that last New Year’s Eve in New York City my inner vision rocked back and forth, back and forth even more than usual. Photo “Wave of the Future” by Roswila]

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).
