This is a beautiful post on dreams and it also cites one of my favourite Polish poets.
Along with Mary Oliver and Emily Dickinson, Wislawa Szymborska is one of my most treasured poets. Thank you for sharing this.
I was born in Krakow, Polan and lived there for over 30 years. That is where she lived as well. I saw her once after she received the Nobel prize. Nobody recognised her in the crowd, they did not know what genius was walking among them.
I remember reading her fascinating Nobel speech where she talked about sitting on a “sofa while staring motionless at a wall”. That image of intensity has stuck with me. Always a pleasure to hear from you.
Thanks for sharing that Monika!
Nicely written, isn’t it?
Thanks for introducing me to dreamrly and Wislawa Szymborska and of course the dream theme… I will ask authorization to reblog it..Thanks again!
Always happy to share great new blogs I encounter!
Yes, nice ode to – unconscious – imagination. (Prefer the conscious type personally, can write poems with that, not only about… 🙂 ).
But the inspiration flows from there, doesn’t it? Glad you dropped by!
