Dance With Words

For years now
she has danced
with the words.
Let them lead her
into worlds of music,
nature, and wild things.

They have nurtured her soul,
allowing a wholeness
she never dreamed
could even be

Feeding both head
and heart,
so they no longer
stand far apart,
one from the other.

But, hold hands
with a firmness of meaning,
bringing comfort and light
to a world
in constant search
of just such things.

    I love that words led you to worlds of nature and wild things. Me, too. Or vice versa. Smiles.
