An attempt at a poem
Dancing in the fabric, is where I feel most free.
Dancing for possibility, between hope and regret.
We rise and we fall. We dance in the spaces in between, exploring duality.
We improvise freely with no desire to set.
Stimulating our cells, and lived body, as this sculpture takes form,
We lean to the rippling waves in the sea of choreographic choices,
To express what it means to survive the storm.

Dancing in the space between these four walls.
Allowing the fabric to move freely, to suspend and to find stories untold.
The flow of feelings and creativity. A desire to escape, nature calls.
We breathe, we embrace, we support and we allow our ideas to unfold.
This is my creative haven. As I reignite concepts and find new connections.
Finding my way through, and holding the score.
Unpacking, uncovering, undoing and unfurling, I gather my questions.
Breathing, sensing, being, meta- cognition, bodily feelings, as we explore.
This dance is surrender.
This dance is truth.
This dance is free.
This dance is ebb and flow.
The dance is me.
