Shadow Dancing

I slow dance with the silhouettes of my transgressions. To a polonaise of hurt and regret; I dip and spin and twirl, until the twinkling of the ballroom stars converge and shed their light on the insight I have gained as a result of having lived through my sins, and come out wiser, on the other side.

Wisdom’s alchemy

Sins orchestrated shadows

Emerge as spirit guides

  1. I liked this so much. Dancing in the face of – in spite of – those mean and nasty thoughts inside that tell us things we don’t want to be told and coming out better in the end is (at least for me) such a positive affirmation. I need to remember this one.
