INTERSTELLAR (photomorph) & THE FUTURE OF DREAMS (5 non-dream scifaiku) by Roswila

(Five Scifaiku*)

earth's refugees
they ride starships
we, dreams

* * *

of frozen dreams
haunted cryo-ship

* * *

invaded by bodies
the dream ship fades
lost in space

* * *

strange dreams, these,
the elders say they are of earth
genetic flotsam

* * *

seventh generation
dreams of earth burn away
under the constant sun

[five (not dream based but about dreaming) scifaiku written at separate times in 2007 or earlier, and posted here in slightly different form in April of 2007. *A scifaiku is a haiku-like form with a science fiction, fantasy, horror or cosmologic theme. I came across these when looking for something to post today as my dreams from last night have not generated any writing. They are strung together in an ever so vaguely sensible way: from leaving earth, to the trip across space, to life on a new planet. Which all together can be read as a "life of the human species" sci-fi story. And I now realize is a sort of hyperbolic recapitulation of my own life so far.

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
