Paw Dream Mazes
All of the poems in PAW DREAM MAZES have dream/reality connections, animal content, rhymes, rhythms, alliteration, and metaphors. The dreamers include animals, people, and aliens from outer space. A few poems in this book reference COVID-19 experiences.
PAW DREAM MAZES has sonnets, two prayer poems, narrative poems with a lot of action, ten pictures, and twenty-four mazes with content from five maze poems: “Mazes in Dreams,” “Dreams of Rescue,” “Cat Grammar,” “A Hungry Mouse in a Dream Maze,” and “Polydactyl Reality and Dreams.”
Connections to our history are referenced in several poems: “Two Mayflower Dogs,” “A Banished Dog,” and “President Abraham Lincoln’s Pets.”
Three poems have sci-fi content. “Alien Bears in Pairs” has some alien bears that interact with campers, police officers, a bear, and a small dog. “Pawsing Time and Space” has aliens who visit the minds of dreaming animals and a senator on Earth. “Tigurrrs of Space” has many alien tigurrrs that all love to fight for their own personal space. Here are two stanzas from different sections of this sci-fi poem, which is on pages 3-18 of Paw Dream Mazes:
Max and Lily had next-door rooms that were new;
a larger room had been split to make two.
Max had more space and his gain was Lily’s loss;
Max was the brother of the space---ship’s boss.
. . . .
When military planes circled overhead,
they added to the alien tigurrrs’ dread;
the tigurrrs all tried to not make any sound
while preparing their ship as a battleground.
Like the felines in our world, the tigurrrs love their space and always have wanted some extra space. That's why they travelled on a "space---ship," instead of on a "spaceship."
