Organic Form: The Shape Dreams Take

Organic Form is a term that refers to visual and literary art.

The literary creation, for example, arises naturally from the materials at hand: Character or subject.

Feathers, clouds, and grasses … these are organic shapes.

The dream is a work of art … a creation involving color, shape, line, character, dialogue, plot and narrative, moral and meaning. It is a creation that appears spontaneously, in full detail and full of action.

Seemingly without rules or proscriptions of any sort, the dream manifests within our minds, using the materials at hand: memory, emotion, experience and belief.

  1. My daydreams are very “liquid” – lots of colors and shapes. By night I am always entangled in suspension, drama, the world needs to be safed (again and again and again). I like the daydreams best.

    • Interesting contrast … your dreams by day and your dreams by night. Maybe you can bring some of that liquid color and shape into your night time dreams?

  2. that is an interesting question.
    i may have to skip an answer to that.
    but i’m sure it will keep me awake a while, the question, tonight.

  3. What a nice post. Now I understand what the theme can be 😉 Thanks!

    My dreams come in many shapes but I forget most of them. Sometimes I dream about art and sometimes I fly. Free as a bird.
