copper water


daily dance practice today felt luscious in my being - connecting with the natural world. after raining all day there was a rivulet streaming down the road right where a streetlight was transforming everything it touched into golden bronze...

a dance of gratitude for the abundance of this element - so prevalent in the pacific northwest...

" the distance,
the shy
weed loving sparrow
who has but one
soft song
which he sings
again and again
and something
somewhere inside
my own unmusical self
begins humming:
thanks for the beauty of the world..."
