JUGGERNAUT (photo) & A NIGHT AT THE OFFICE (triple dreamku series) by Roswila



a much younger guy
shows his disabled old boss how
to stand up and walk
the old man resents this help
even from a disabled person

into standing and walking
the old guy goes wild –
he leaps and jumps around
in an hysterical way

hitting an office wall
stops his vengeful frenzy –
that old expression
comes immediately to mind
“God protects fools and children”


an old CEO
is suspected of cheating,
of doing something
dishonest after hours
when he’s alone at his desk

I defend him
against these rumors as we
have no evidence:
maybe it’s personal work
or to help his secretary


a young dark haired boy’s
deep research is at a level
way beyond his years
the announcement comes at last
to gather for the results

office tensions rise
we’re told the boy’s research
upsets accepted
thought on survival rates after
a sweeping nuclear attack

it would be zero,
not five percent, not three,
but a flat zero
a path that leads to the end
nothing can grow from nothing

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....".
