POISED FOR FLIGHT (photo) & THE TELEPATH (dreamku series) by Roswila


she’s ambivalent
does she want him to hear
the thoughts she’s buried

he’s a journalist
investigating the group that’s
reshaping her beliefs
he could be big trouble but
trouble could be what she needs

so she releases
her thoughts at full volume –
even the head blind*
within a few block’s radius
must have heard that last blast

he approaches her
gingerly, as if she were
a trapped wild bird
the look in his eyes clearly
saying that he wants to help

equally clear, he knows she’s ambivalent
an open mind can be a frightening freedom

[a dreamku and three tanka capped by a two-liner. *Head blind = someone who has no ability at all to receive or send telepathically, a term "she" thought in the dream that I once read in a science fiction or fantasy book. Photo “Poised for Flight” 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:

-- 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).
