Shaman - Horse

Poem - Dream of Dancing

For me dancing is an exercise in transcendence. Interestingly, as much as I love to dance, I never dream of dancing. I've been doing contra for nearly fourteen years, and I've never dreamt of a contradance. I normally don't dream of people I know, so my dream life seems to have a separate reality from the waking. I take pleasure in that. Dreams don't have to be just sleeping. We are capable of waking dreams as well. And yes, this poem is about more than just dancing.

Dream of Dancing
Poem for Day 076 – 20141208

I dream of dancing
the shore of emotions
our shared moment now
together at last.

Our humanity
our only true gift
given so freely
to best dark beast.

Swim in the lake
below the water
away from the shore
match to the heartbeat.

Seeking the inner
inside the outer
goal is the movement
beyond the starting.

Bodily movements
both coinciding
together in hand
rapture be unleashed.

Come up for sweet air
dive down yet again
wait for the moment
flutter step achieved.

Abreast waterfall
aside quiet pool
relax wanderlust
to dream of dancing.
