Abandon through dance

Photo found at:


I would have been the girl

laughing in my nature dance,

I would have been the girl laughing

wild abandon that is beauty

I would have been

ensnared in the dance that is life,

I would be spinning under the setting sun

summers demise and warm autumn nights,

I would have been the girl

dancing with my friends,

not a care in the world,

embracing all that is

in this rich and beautiful tapestry

of trees and grass soft on the feet,

woven like a waltz,

one two three

to be simply free,

I would have been the girl.


Midnight escape

Moon full in the sky
Running wild through the midnight hour
Lace whips against the legs
Snared on reaching branches.
The voices they come closer
Must run and hide away.
I feel a hand reach out
Grabbing my arm
Quick, follow me the voice whispers
Softly, sweetly Against my ear
Down here
You will see ,
Hiding behind brush thick with thorns
I hear the voices
Moving in the distance
And breath moves in and out
So very heavy.
I listen for them
They do not come this way
And I feel your body behind me
Leaning against my back
As your hand runs softly through my hair,
You are safe here you speak
As your lips move next to mine,
I inhale the fragrance
Lilacs and sunshine,
I am safe now and relax for a moment
I turn to look into your face
Shrouded in the darkness
Shadowed but I know it well
As I have all of my life
In my dreams
You’ve come to me
At last.
