A DIFFERENT ANGLE (photo) & SEE HOW (dream tanka pair) by Roswila


framing, and framing
yet again, to find the right one
large, small, square, or round
the shape that holds a photo
its crucial finishing touch

look! see how a wide
frame completely rebalances
this one's composition:
a lost, small bright shape becoming
the light giving heart in its darkness

[tanka pair on a dream of 10-8-15. On recalling this dream I immediately remembered having used the psychological technique of "reframing" earlier that morning without realizing it. Though I was clear at the time that I'd completely changed -- in a most positive way -- how I hold a particular aspect from my very early childhood. As I think on it now, doing that instinctive reframing may very well have been precipitated by this dream. Although I hadn't yet recalled the dream, it's clear the concept of reframing was active in my less conscious mind. (BTW, reframing is "the conceptual and/or emotional viewpoint in relation to which a situation is experienced and placing it in a different frame that fits the 'facts' of a concrete situation equally well, thereby changing its entire meaning.")

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.
