The 12 deepest dream states are the feminine, non-cognitive states that cannot be interpreted through dream symbols and produce what to us seems like a deep, dreamless sleep. They speak to us through art and the poetry of dreaming.
This unique poetry communicates through omissions – that which is not said. This imparts multiple depths of meaning that reveal themselves as feelings and qualities. Although the poetry of dreaming uses literary devices such as assonance,* alliteration, personification and sustained epithets; their use has profound purpose that transcends the obvious. The same applies to the use of adjectives.
Its concise powerful, descriptive quality is reminiscent of the poetic form of Haiku but whereas Haiku is bound by a rigid structure, poetry of dreaming is not. Haiku provides the essence of simplicity that lies within the complexity of appearances. The poetry of dreaming whispers through its rich imagery of the primordial origins of the moment.
