THE LIDS ARE BLOWN (photomorph) & I SPY WITH MY LITTLE DREAM I ... (dream narrative) by Roswila


panic in the ground level dining room!

what the frack? thinks the dream I
there's no way to understand this ruckus
other than as a cry for help

at least this fast food room isn't crowded
yet with diners, as the workers rush out
to the sidewalk in a tumult

then the dream I notes the considerable
staff of the fancy lower level
dining room boiling up the stairs

ah, they must have heard the fuss
even way below in their carpeted,
wood-paneled room, and are rising
en masse to assist the ground level workers

though there's no sign of what's caused
the panic still clearly roiling among
the ground level dining room staff,
the arrival of concerned folk
who do the same sort of work as they
begins to calm them down

there's a chance, whispers a still trembling
waitress as calmly as she can to a crying
young bus boy, that we'll now
not only be listened to, but understood

[narrative on a dream of 12-6-14. This is the second recent dream (see yesterday's post) in which being in the position of an observer was important. There's much more to both dreams than that, but it is an important aspect. I'm hoping it's presence indicates a move toward creating a helpful distance between me and my troublesome emotions/thoughts. A further "disidentification" with them, if you will.

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.
