WHAT WILL BE WRITTEN (photo) & [untitled] (old dream tanka) by Roswila

difficult days at
year's end mute dream memory
a vague sense of halls
and dividers standing tall
gratitude that what is, is

[a tanka dreamed/written at the end of 2008. I was going to write a tanka about not recalling dreams recently when I remembered this old one. One I’d write today would have different vague dream fragments in it, but the overall sense would be the same. I.e, what little I’ve retained of dreams over the past couple of weeks has been full of people interactions (actual and imagined, living and deceased), and I've been going to sleep reviewing my gratitude list. It’s all too easy to go into sleep agitated by the day’s difficulties and forgetting all that’s good. Photo “What Will Be Written” 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....".
