old skirt 2017

.

Skirt of many long colors

sewn in gathers

and tiers

.

brushing my ankles

with playful seams

cutting through the design

.

of mismatched patterns

wearing thin

after all these years

.

washing on delicate

hanging to dry

one more time.

Time is not the enemy,

aging doesn’t dowse our fire.

Instead the boundaries burn away,

we seek the siren’s call

and grow wilder than a tiger’s eye.

Light flares from our fingertips

passion tingles up our spine

joy is found in minute pieces –

feathers, petals,

agates, leaves

and every atom spinning

through the dancing universe.

No, we don’t dream of rocking chairs,

we rocket like a comet

into life.
