CWR210: Week 5

Exercise 6:

Write a poem about a dream you’ve had. Try to tap into the symbolism the dream  seems to be highlighting.

Vertigo
spinning cycles of time
with a change in scenery seamlessly
juxtaposing
loss and abandonment.

I spin.

Flying
falling is just flying
but out of control – a bad landing
Powerlessness
I am a passenger on someone else’s highway

I fall.

Spiral
Deeper and deeper
through memories and fantasy
Desperation
grasping at imaginary hand-holds

I land. Alone.

Dreams
shake confidence
give insight, clarity, terrify and harmonise
polarising
discovery and interpretation

I wake up sweating.
