SHADES (photo) & "a dark shadow..." (dreamku) by Roswila
a dark shadow
invades the soldier’s skull:
the war at home
[re-post of a dreamku, that I dreamed/wrote maybe as many as 20 years ago (I just today added that colon, hopefully to clarify it a bit). I thought of this dreamku yesterday, Memorial Day, as I was watching ANCHORS AWEIGH -- a wartime (1945), lighthearted, technicolor movie musical. There was such a stark contrast between the movie and what Memorial Day is about that at times it became almost unwatchable for me. Photo "Shades" (5-28-16 10011e2a) by Roswila]
But first, a request: please let me know of any typos or other sorts of blunders in my posts. As my eyes age I'm finding more mistakes are creeping into what I put up here no matter how many times I proof it all. Thanks for any help!
For more in-depth exploration of the dreamku form, and one post in which I also address my photo choices:
-- 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....".
