NIGHT CLIMB (photo) & THAT SMARTS (dreamku series) by Roswila


a poster proof sheet
appears suddenly in the air,
dozens of versions
of the same basic design
for a new smart phone campaign:

a woman’s huge fingers,
just the well-manicured tips at
an artsy angle,
hang over the city-scape
as if it were a keyboard

the theme implied by each poster:
the entire city at your fingertips

an unintended
association rises
like a miasma:
King Kong clinging to the top
of the Empire State building

trailing this old movie image the thought:
loss of proportion can be dangerous

[two tanka, a two-liner, another tanka, and a closing two-liner on a dream of 3-14-13. Photo “Night Climb” 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....".
