Monday Poetry Train #6


The web, they said,
Will snag all dreams
Most dire--

Yet give free pass
To any we'd

Dreams unwelcome
Burn to ash with
Dawn's fire.

This poem was written one Christmas to accompany the several Dreamcatchers Ed made as gifts that year. I got the pic off of the Wikipedia article about Dreamcathers

Mythology is on my mind today because I uncovered several of my mythology books during the major rearranging of our room that I described on Friday's post. Among them the four volume set of Joseph Campbell's Masks of God and Clarrisa Pinkola Estes' Women Who Run With the Wolves. I found spots for all of these today where they will be in plain sight and easy to access. I feel a major myth gormandizing coming on.

7 tell me a story:

This was great, because it really captures at least what I know about dream catchers.

I like dreamcatchers and I like this poem!

Beautiful poem, Joy!! Did you check out my post? I sent you a thinking blogger award for making me think! =) Red

"Dreams unwelcome
Burn to ash with
Dawn's fire."

Lovely! I like the short length of the piece - it gives it more power.

I don't think it could be any more perfect.

I've been lurking via my reader, so I've been following the room redo. Glad you found some books and inspiration from them; can't wait to see what you come up with!

i loved this Joy - especially since my story has a dreamcatcher used to trap a character. All the Campbell books are fabulous and of course Women Who Run with Wolves is a must read for all women.
