    Grief and Gratitude #Grief #Gratitude #Poetry #Dance #Recovery #Nature

    As I struggle through life trying to take care of myself in a world that overwhelms me, an open window recently became inspiration to put my life into words.

    “Grief and Gratitude”

    Grief and gratitude dance disguised
    As rhythms of my heart.

    Their steps of tangled memories
    Making my worn feet falter.

    An open window's warm whispering wind,
    Woodsmoke on a cold night's air.

    Being loved once and then no more,
    Yet sunrise still enters my soul.

    Grief leads too often
    So I reach for gratitude's hand.

    Although she, too, has let me fall,
    In beautiful, humbled grace.

    And I remember you, the time before,
    When hope still measured my way.

    Before moments became memories
    And memories became this dance.

    I long for different accompaniment
    As grief now scores each song.

    But who shall take the final bow
    When starlight steals the broken
    And breezes bathe my skin?

    🕺Silly Topic Of The Day 👯‍👯🏿‍♂️ What do you look like when you dance or describe your favorite dance memory!💃🏽

    Well, I have two left feet and no rhythm and I always look like im trying to decide on a dance move but can't think of one.. so I just kinda awkwardly move my limbs 😆

    My fave dance memory is definitely my sisters wedding. I was very drunk and just had no care in the world. Me, my sis, her new husband and there friends danced until we were kicked out lol. The song Hey Ya! By outcast came on. I taught everyone the one dance move I know🤣
    I also made my late father in law dance with me. He passed a year later I think it was. Even though I nearly had to drag him onto the dance floor, he was smiling and I know we both had fun😊
