BY MORNING'S LIGHT (photomorph) & ...TO SEE THE LIGHT (dream writing) by Roswila


the dream’s completely taken up with funerals,
not actual ones, but an on-going comparison
of the various types; what it ultimately boils
down to are three important aspects common
to them all (and there does seem to be a great
many styles in which people can be sent on
their final ways); as these three aspects found
in all funerals are repeated so as not to be
forgotten, a voice like that of a small
child starts softly singing “I’m…
beginning to see the light”

[on a dream of 12-3-19. Another dream with a song in it. This time, though, the dream “I” was not doing the singing, but observing the entire scene. In a dream I had last night, though, “I” was not only singing, but writing a song as I did.
😊 (I’ve drafted a poem on it and will probably post it tomorrow.) When I googled for the full lyrics and listened to various versions of the song referenced in the above writing, I was delighted it had come up in a dream. I’d forgotten what a lovely song it is! Click here to listen to Doris Day’s rendition. (Yes, her singing of it is right up there with Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee, as far as I’m concerned.) BTW, I still haven’t quite gotten a handle on this dream. Right now, I’m thinking “It’s always darkest before the dawn.” But I know there’s more to it.

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 or contrasting 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,
