Strange that DREAM should come up just now. Earlier today I learned about the SEVENLING at Mama Zen's place. So I tried my hand at one. It's about Bran Stark's coma dream in his third chapter from A Game of Thrones, the first book in G.R.R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire.
In Bran’s fever dream:
one rush to earth, two sisters
[visions from the three eyed crow;]
two boys grown - Stark steel, ice cold Snow;
free cities, bleak Vaes Dothrak, shadowy Asshai.
But in the cold, dead heart of Winter, what thought of dragons?
Distilled to a senryu
a broken child’s dream
of his family’s tragedies
all in prophesy
A dream painting to contemplate -
The Dream - Henri Rousseau, 1910
so peaceful a dream
but there is danger lurking
in the dark shadows
Rousseau explains it with this poem:
Yadwigha in a beautiful dream
Having fallen gently to sleep
Heard the sounds of a reed instrument
Played by a well-intentioned [snake] charmer.
As the moon reflected
On the rivers [or flowers], the verdant trees,
The wild snakes lend an ear
To the joyous tunes of the instrument.

wakes to snakes dancing
