through books?

through books?

I love to day-dream. When I was younger I thought that I was honestly wasting my time and told myself to stop thinking that it was odd and obscure; that I was living in a dream-world. Now, I wish I could tell my younger-self how important it is to dream and how self-restoring it can be.

    I like actual dreaming more, personally. I actually wrote the first line of this haiku in a dream I had in mid-October! I often write in my dreams, but rarely remember anything I’ve written. I wake up with memories many mornings that what I wrote while asleep was something great, and it makes me wonder if I’ve done some of my best writing in my dreams…

    “Haiku – Daydreaming of Prisonbreak”
    by Ry Hakari

    I’m caged in midday
    between the bars of twilights
    but dreamscape tonight

      You write things down while you’re dreaming! That is absolutely incredible! Most the things that I dream about are so odd and so difficult to trap down! I love those three lines they are absolutely beautiful! 😀 ❤

        Thanks!

        I am sort of obsessed with the haiku and tanka poetry forms, and I have frequently written them in my dreams, and oddly enough I actually follow the correct syllable count in the lines… I would think that I would be totally off, as the mind is very imaginative and inaccurate while asleep…

        it’s really weird. I’ve stirred myself awake before by double checking by counting on my fingers the 5/7/5 syllable count for haiku in my dreams, when I’ve for some reason tried to count on my fingers at the same time in real life in my bed!

        I actually experimented with a dream recall hypnosis audio session I bought online, because I wanted to remember clearly what I wrote while asleep, and it was starting to work, but I had to quit because apparently I have a lot of dreams about my first love that I usually forget, and the dreams of her led to a bout with depression… sucks…

        I haven’t remembered any dreams of writing while asleep for several weeks now, I don’t think. During the last 3-4 months of last year though, when I was writing a lot during the day every day, I was having writing dreams almost every night.

        I’m guessing it happens more frequently when I’m doing it more during the day, which makes sense, as I’ve read that dreams are often our subconscious minds processing the events of our days… I guess kind of like how computer files, over time, get fragmented and can start to cause computers to run slower. I think dreams are often our brains defraging the stresses, events and ideas of our days… which I guess explains why I seem to have so many dreams of my first love that the dream recall hypnosis session started causing me to remember…

        makes me think of this quote an Alexander Pope poem I first heard in my favorite movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind:

        “How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
        The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
        Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
        Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d”
        ― Alexander Pope, Eloisa to Abelard

        Oh, I’m awkward long-winded Ry, by the way. Nice to meet you Lizzy 🙂

      I totally agree! At the time I thought that it was something to be ashamed of, as I thought that by living in a day-dream, I was living life for myself. But I’ve grown up and I know that daydreaming is brilliant for creating ideas, and for helping you relax! 🙂
