"Life is for Loving" and loving is what I try to do. This easy in terms of my children - they have shaped my life - probably still do. So does theatre, music, sunsets & trees. Been scribbling poetry off & on from childhood and always had a view for performed words with movement. I like to dance.


IN THE SHADOW Will I wake to think Blink to see Hear my heart Speak out of time Then backward turn and see me creep step away to fill the space I’m falling down No ladders here No matter Wings will open Pull against Giving in to Choose to go To find that time is run STANDING IN THE WIND To stand in the wind and not fall down Held in the blows, swaying within Longing to melt, or bend; just shout But burning, breaking, invisibly dancing There’s a beat and it stabs at my breast Shattered chords transforming the hope As my cries meet silence and fear In a crippling movement of love You’re playing They’re moving You’re asking They’re giving They’re willing And wanting And taking the loving And the wind is biting as dancing is dying But dying is dancing To stand in the wind And not fall down
