Abstract: The poems in this collection are divided into two sections. Those in the first half are the result of readings in the work of Carl Jung, the recording and analysis of dreams over a period of two years, and contact with two individuals concerned with what might roughly be classified as dream poetry: George Abbe, Poet in Residence at Russell Sage College, and Alan Jackson, a young Scottish poet living in Edinburgh. The poems in the second section rely more heavily than those in the first section upon the workings of the "conscious" as opposed to the "unconscious" mind. My writing has been greatly influenced by the works of Rainer Maria Rilke (J.B. Irishman's translations), T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, B.B. Cummings, and Dylan Thomas.
