There are no words
to properly express
The gifts I have received,
In each step I offer my thanks,
in knowing these emotions.
Every turn an acknowledgement
of how my sentence could have ended,
my greatest run-on
I offer my dance to the Universe,
The oldest Goddess,
the newest God,
all receiving my gratitude.
As I bow,
the dance ended,
I remind myself to continue the dance,
with every breath,
in every task
my spirits recharged.
