WINDOW ON TO RAINBOWS (photomorph) & ON PIONEERING (tanka dream series) by Roswila


did I read somewhere
or simply dream it, long ago,
that an emotion
(at its most basic) is saying “Don’t just
stand (or sit or lie) there, do something!”

that an emotion,
like each of these milling dream colors,
rises or bursts in us,
a pioneer agitating at the locked gates
of the fortresses we make of our selves

“Come,” it says, pounding
like a beating heart on the loose,
“do you see where I’m
going? Do you know what you’re rejecting
if you don’t look my color in the face?”

[three tanka on a dream of 6-10-19. I’ve mentioned here many times how infrequently I dream in color. And, even when I do, it’s usually only of one color. Last night's dreams – as far as I recall – were the most color-loaded ones I’ve ever had. So much so that I don't recall any other details of those dreams. Just the visuals of color, color, color. Mostly in patches and swatches, and hanging in the air like variegated post-it notes. Photomorph “Window On To Rainbows” (6-28-09 2988v8[2]) by Roswila]

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), 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,
