One Life’s Measure

>> 3.22.2012

If the measure of a life
     is gauged by the moments
that steal our breath,
     then my life has a full measure

What stutters my breath;
     what extent does my life encompass?

Capturing that elusive word
     when writing, gazing upon
the endless dance of stars
     painted across a midnight sky,

the melancholy susurration
     of wind in the trees, a pas de deux
of wood and flame, tracing
     the arch of your brow, savoring
your exhalation upon my nape

and the arpeggio of our love
     and life together.

About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
