She slips off her shoes and socks
Puts on her favorite music Forgetting time Inhabiting another space Allowing the beat to rule Immersing in the melodic journey Her motions joyous offerings Bodily prayers of sweat and toil Dancing Goddess worship Dark depressive demons foil © REDCAT

Nice line: “Bodily prayers of sweat and toil”
Thank you! That’s what it feels like sometimes. Tonight where such a night! :-)
when I am on here tonight my favourite tune will be on. your words will dance in my head untill the beat takes me.
My fave line- “immersing in the melodic journey’- wonderful!
Nice images of conquering the darkside with wild dancing
much ❧✿❧ love
I’ve always envied those who can express themselves so beautifully in motion. Lovely write.
The slipping off of shoes and socks is so evocative, and your character could be about to paddle in the sea or relax after a long day, but barefoot dancing is so liberating, the poem burst into life. I love the way the music moves her to Inhabit another space in order to foil those demons. The monochrome image is perfect for your quadrille.
Wow! what a lovely piece. I really liked the last 4 lines :)
Embodyment, grounding deeper, I love how she reorients to joy.
Dancing is a good way to cope with stress. (K)
Dancing sounds like a wonderful relief.
Woah, it was all smooth and lovely then the eerie twist at the end, beautiful writing
Wowww!! I love this especially; “Her motions joyous offerings/Bodily prayers of sweat and toil.”❤️
Joyous dancing truly chases away so many demons. Loving this! Love the rhyming that anchors it all so nicely.
Nice!! Happy dancing!
