Free Verse – A Song of Dancing Feet

In this free verse poetry, “A Song of Dancing Feet”.

Life is sweet and savage at the same time. Look at the bear, who looks too adorable until he becomes hungry, then his humble demeanor tears at the shreds of existence. I have lived the effects of both sides of life. To struggle so hard at times, then it can be so tender.

This free verse poetry and digital art piece offer a perspective this through words.

A Song of Dance

It is passionate that I dance.
This pattern of a song from feet.
Weighted with body, and soul
and what of the body,
and how much I choose to carry.
I’ve trudged this countryside,
cleared many broken limbs from the past.
Fight off the savage dogs.
Outran the cold to cuddle near burning fires.
Peeled me a home to rest.
And am still breathing.
Feathered your ashes across mountaintops.
Now you sleep in my memories.
I massage my feet upon the pebbles of time.
Trust in the caress of his love.
Embracing tiny ebbs brushed from his heart.
At day’s end, I smile with tired bones.
But, it is passionate that I dance.
Trusting the touch of the morning,
and the kiss of the night with each step.
