Morning Trip (319)

“I think we must surrender the despair of unexpected cruelties and extend the wonder of unexpected kindnesses to ourselves and to each other…We deserve each other and each other’s generosity.”
–Maya Angelou

Here ends my crying
My calling to fill the space
and to make clean
with water from my cries
I am pressed forth
from the womb of water
to stand up
to continue dancing.
I honor you
friend and teacher.
(Now come here, I love you sooo much! Let me hit you with this brick.)
–yours, Dancing Backwards, and lovingly nicknamed Kicks ‘n Shins
