night/morning therapies #31 & #32

Skin

I can no longer live in this skin

let me

bleach flesh away from bone

with bile, acid, salty blood & tears

I like this sentiment; I’ll stop trying to be the sun (never very successful – usually just glare to glint on my glasses lens and back into the world) and try to be the moon (a softer glow with more magic and ephemera). Are you the sun or the moon?

And must remember this:

    I really like the idea that I might be the/a moon shining for people in the darkness. And yes, limp notwithstanding, I’m a DANCING GIRL!!! (in my living room of course) :)

      Glad to hear you’re a dancing girl. I like the moon quote too — I never thought of it quite that way before.

        I hadn’t thought of it that way either–but what a blessing!! PS: I can even dance while sitting on the couch–plenty of shoulder action and attitude!

              Couch dancing is one of my favorite pass times!
              We should make a video! LOL

                  Just whatever songs happen to come via TV commercials, usually–so many use music familiar to us “Boomers”, which is way cool. And I also love “salsa”/Latino music–it was made to dance to and be JOYFUL!! :)

    Quite a variety of emotions! The first poem hits home, as for the second I would hope I’m the moon, and the third makes me want to dance as well.

      I didn’t get dancing, but moved a bit to some music. No bubble wands — indoors most of the day.

    I think of myself as a candle. I don’t put off much light but I help light the way.
    I love the last quote.
    I think we both have a bit of a limp, and that’s okay.

      We need candles — the light in the window that shows you the way home, the light in the darkness of the storm, the light that reveals the tao.
      Yep, we both limp but that’s okay.:)

    Beautiful quote. I’m the happy idiot in the room. I tell myself I’m the moon, but it’s really just the Sun at night.

I love dialogue. Do you?
