Solo

I live in sunsets, playing with the dusk colours
Nowhere to go this strange, aloof, evening
I hear wisdom sigh, her translucence bound in silk ropes
Straining from forgotten corridors, and I am bound too

Life around me dances her beauty, as always
Locked in love and that sense of sweet belonging
But me, I missed a step on my pointes, one summer
Tripping over sunrises while chasing hard dreams

I walk amongst the love that isn’t mine
Drinking the soft glow of mornings, tethered to borders
Solo from orphaned times, I exist in the missing hours
No claims that I belong to, a mote with gossamer wings

Thoughts go hoarse in my solo dance, but I skip all the same
Moving towards rainbows that would release me one day
One day, someday, I would dance again, my pointes back on
Dancing wild, back into my divinity, back into his arms…

    The narrative form works well here Bindu. I cant pick a phrase because all are as just as good as next proceeding one. I thought that this was lovely and full of exuberance.

    Absolutely amazing images. I was utterly absorbed in your dance. "Tripping over sunrises while chasing hard dreams" is a stunning line.

    Perfect loveliness, Bindu. You write with such passion, tinged with sadness but also hope--a soul resonating with the infinite. I tried a similar thing in my poem "Rebirth," which I hope you can read.
