IN THE SHOWER (photo) & IN THE GAME (dreamku series) by Roswila


she’s in the shower
I take the call in which he says
where and when they’ll meet
she sticks her dripping wet head
out from behind the bathroom door

pouting she murmurs
“I forgot to dismantle
his friendship belt”
adding quickly “that would have
ended it with him, don’t you think?”

I agree that a
hidden move like that might
have broken them up
however, she might need
to split up with him herself

not bear the secret a sticky attachment

she mumbles something
and shuts the bathroom door --
I begin shuffling
cards to play a game of hearts
with a strange dark-haired man

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....".
