Ariadne's Dream Project: Love Poems for the World!

By worldpoetry on June 5, 2010 - 9:15am

Dear World Poets, Supporters and Friends.
This year I have begun a personal research program to create dream poems with the goal of helping to heal the world.
The idea began many years ago when I was apprenticed to a First Nations Elder and he told me about the elders in the past who could heal parts of the environment by going to those places and staying there until the healing began. He described the world as a living entity that needs help and support, at times getting out of balance. Elders like Rolling Thunder did this on a large scale.
A month ago I had a dream which inspired me to begin this project. Most of the time, my research projects are with other researchers but this time I will start the project by myself and then perhaps with other researchers do an anthology of dream poems in the future.
I could use your help in the information process. If you have a short story or paragraph of 100-150 words or a poem that would in some way describe your country or region, I will read one before I go to bed at night and then write the corresponding dream as it happens.
