IN THE MOMENT (photo) & INDULGENCE (dream tanka series) by Roswila


the young new lovers
hide away in a motel
they’re FBI
co-workers and shouldn’t
hook up this way at all

alternately sating
their sexual hunger and
lolling about in bed
leaves them starved for a meal
plus it’s Thanksgiving Day

they’re not willing to
eat in a restaurant nor
to go get take-out
they put their pretty heads
together: they’ll order in

he phones to have the
sixty thousand foot cable
laid for delivery
they turn to each other again
how far can indulgence go

[four tanka on a dream of 2-23-13. Photo “In the Moment” 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).

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