~Castaways~

 

Blowing in the wind

Evil thoughts so bountiful

Winged maliciousness

 

Guard thy psyche well

Piercing arrows seek a breech

Nightmare's cutting edge

 

Dreamcatcher sentry

Snagging tainted thoughts with ease

While the good fly through

 

Reverie secured

Detritus of evil trapped

Sunrise castaways

A lovely haiku-chain structure that uses beautiful dynamic imagery (wind, wings, blowing, arrows) so that the dreamcatcher can easily be imagined catching and filtering. Very nice!

Your haiku/senryu are always thought-inciting and they indicate (to me) that a lot of thought is put into their creation. Thank you, Carolyn. Love and best wishes,

Thank God for these dreamcatcher castaways, Carolyn! The equivalent of spiritual internet security. xx
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 4/4/2012
It is strange how we seem to remember nightmares more vividly than ordinary dreams. And so many dreams evaporate when the sun comes through the window, filtered by a dream catcher.

yes, perfect poem. very clever.
Reviewed by Jon Willey 4/3/2012
Carolyn, terse and rich verse that suggests selective and subjective evaluations leave the truth behind at times and find evil when none was intended -- just my interpretation of course -- this is verse that holds my attention from first word to the last -- your hallmark my dear friend -- I wish you love and peace -- Jon Michael

Ahhh, if it was only that easy, my friend, but more often than not evil wins the day. Loved the way you constructed this poem, very easy on the read.
