daggers and silk

it takes a lot of skill, of training
to be sharp, precise, swift,
coordinated or compartmentalized
in dance

it takes an acceptance
of being vulnerable
and more rare-
an acceptance
of being ached by life-
to be deeply gentle and fluid
in dance,
to stream self
through movement
as lushness of spring waters
or amber snow melting
down from maple branches
nurturing
the vernal earth
shaping the contours
of thornless flowers
grateful to just be
alive
