Actress

Blink

bright light

Sun dances

Across my bare

shoulder blade and cheek

 

Blink

Pink hands

Grasping sheets

Rub sleep filled eyes

Pulling hair off neck

 

Blink

letters

Forming words

Appear across

My small field of view  

 

Once

Upon

A time, there

Was a girl who

Went adventuring

 

Once

She got

Out of bed

She could make her

Mark in her life story

 

Once

She steps

Off the edge

She has power

To change the whole world

 

With

Her voice

resonates

A vibration

Never before heard

 

With

Her limbs

She creates

Bold expression

Corporeal song

 

With

Her hands

She creates

Lasting art to

understand humans

 

With

Her heart

She connects

To other hearts

their stories alive

 

Once

Upon

A time, there

Was a story

Waiting to become

Written.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
