IN THE FOREST OF MAGIC (photomorph) & "he demands I use ..." (dreamku pair) by Roswila

he demands I use
greater magic than I know
comic book hero

were the rest just ghosts?
no, his vanished gang was even
less substantial

[a pair of dreamku -- haiku-like dream-based form I developed and used to write in a lot. The first one was written in April of 2008 and the second just yesterday. I went through my oldest dreamku late last night for something to repost today. (They were handwritten in small spiral bound notebooks, so old now they're almost crumbling.) That first one above grabbed me for some reason I still don't quite get. Then that second dreamku simply popped up, brand new in my mind, in response to the first. It's heavily influenced by my recent decrease in dream recall. Something I hear can happen as we get further along in our senior years. Well, I'm hoping it's only a brief spate of very low recall. I've had them before over the years. But, of course, I wasn't 74 during those brief times of poor dream memory. So, only time will tell, or not, as the case may turn out to be.

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....".
